    I suppose in some languages, there would be no ambiguity. In written English, one could theoretically come up with a construct for this especially in the post-handwritten world but we seem to muddle along.

      About 10 years ago I did a lot of work in the Czech Republic.
      The standard of english amongst my native czech colleagues was rather good but with one exception which would always do my head in.
      Where we would use the word "soon" they would use the phrase "in the next time"!
      As I said it used to do my head in!

        Usually the answer to a Daily Fail headline question is "No". But this is an exception (well the second question in the headline anyway)

          So the answer is yes, it is just Liz. Jolly good. No worries.
