How do you spell "on time"?
There are words that can be written differently independing on the context. For example, how do you spell correctly: "on time" or "in time"? When the word "in time" is an adverb, it is written together. In this case, it has the meaning "on time", "without delay". For example:
- "The train arrived on time."
- "If you recognize the symptoms of the disease in time, then it will be easier to treat it."
The combination of "in time" (preposition + noun) is written separately:
- "During a thunderstorm, you can not hide under trees."
If it is difficult for you to determine the part of speech, thenuse a simple hint. In the adverb "in time" the stress always falls on the first syllable - "in time". In this case we write together. The noun "time" with the preposition "in" stress always on the letter "e" - "at the time". In this case, we write separately.
