By 字的運用

我想問 by this weekend 係指今個星期六之前定係今個星期六或之前呢??

請大家回答之餘都比多d examples 我,更好者可以比多d "by" 既用法,Thanks~~

更新:

咁我想問by this weekend 同 before this weekend 有咩分別??

更新 2:

咁我想再問點解唔可以用:

Before this time next week, they will be in New York.

係唔係因為grammer 錯左?

咁如果講,"下個星期的同一時間,他們將會於new york" 只係可以用By this time next week??

Thanks

    by this weekend = 今個星期六或之前

    by this weekend = not later than this weekend 不遲於本週末

    e.g.

    Hand in your work by Friday => Friday is the last day to hand in your work.

    by a certain time in the future = 到那時候

    e.g.

    Can you finish the work by 5 o'clock? 你可以在五點前完成嗎﹖

    By this time next week, they will be in New York.

    by a certain time in the future 動詞的時態多為 future perfect tense

    e.g.

    I will have read the book once by this time tomorrow. 明天這時候我會(已經)把書讀完一遍。

    He ought to have arrived by now (by this time). 這時候他應該已經抵逹。

    By the time the postcard reaches you, I will have left the country. 你收到明信片時,我已經離開國家。

    You can use either

    Hand in your work before Friday or Hand in your work by Friday

    but the deadline is different.

    You cannot use before in this sentence:

    By this time next week, they will be in New York.

    Before this time next week, they will be in New York. (wrong)
