¡...y mañana!


I am not sure if this is a question unless I got something wrong here.


 Buenas dias  -- good morning

  hasta mañana -- until tomorrow

I saw some flash cards a few days ago and I saw la noche with a picture of a horizon with a sun just over it and the word is mañana. Tomorrow? and then I read just now.

...por las mañanas --- in the mornings

Mañanas, tomorrow, can also mean morning!

Yes, partly. Mañana by itself means tomorrow. La mañana with the article "la" in front of it means morning.

I'm not native, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

You're welcome :) I try to help when I can, with what little bit I know about the Spanish language haha - megan5, JUL 10, 2010

Veo 'mañana' todos partes ahora. I see "tomorrow" everywhere now!

Nosotros veiamos el barco cada mañana. We would see the boat each morning.

Cada isn't a article. I don't know enough grammar here, but it seems if there is a word to introduce mañana then it is morning except for "el". grin

Do you mean 'el barco?" the cada is agreeing with mañana but I also saw an instance of 'el mañ..' that was not 'el día de mañ'. You are right it will pop up for us and we will get it. - margaretbl, JUL 11, 2010

El mañana means tomorrow as La mañana means morning

El mañana seems strange because tomorrow is used much more as an adverb than as a noun. - 0074b507, JUL 11, 2010
It's the name of a song by one of my favorite bands. - epicfail, JUL 12, 2010

Imway I think you are meaning 'el día de mañana' which means 'future' or 'in the future' there is no 'el mañana'

Our Dictionary just mentions that mañana is a masculine noun when it means "tomorrow". It give no examples of el mañana. James Bond's Tomorrow Never Dies is El mañana nunce muere, but I don't trust anything I find online. El mañana es... - 0074b507, JUL 11, 2010
suficiente tiempo para... El mañana será un mejor día?? Looks weird, but so does a lot of Spanish. - 0074b507, JUL 11, 2010
