    Sorry, Ace of Spade but I've to speak up!

    What date is today?

    Here has a grammar structure problem. We'll say like this: What is today's date?

    What day is today?

    We understand what you are going to say but it's wired when you hear someone say it in your way.

    I partly agree with Jekin. He wrote: Mary was borned on the same day as John.

    If you say: Mary was borned on the same date as John!!! You are emphasizing the date of birth.

    I revise it in this way: John and Mary made their appointments on the same date.

    Another inappropriate example from you:

    Mary met John on the same day when he broke his leg. (Careful on your grammar.)

    You should revise your sentence:

    They met on the day when John had broken his leg.

    or

    John had broken his leg when he met Mary on the same day.

    對不起, 002說:”same date是不會出現的...”

    恐怕這不對,以下新聞就有

    Muslim organizations to celebrate Idul Fitri on same date

    文章就多次出現same date

    先想更正001:

    Mary was borned on the same date as John.

    是不正確的,或說英這不會這樣寫的,就算這裏意思是同一日(日期)生日,也只可以寫成:

    Mary was borned on the same day as John.

    Mary has the same birth date (或通常英語人會說date of birth)as John.就可以用date.

    day是日子/一星期或一年中的某一日/或一個/類日子

    date是一個日期,有年月日已定的。

    same date是不會出現的,因為date只有一個。不會兩樣東西在同一個「日期」內。

    所以same一定是day的。no exception.不用擔心會寫錯。

    上面給你例子是說明:same "date of birth"是一樣東西,跟same "date"的意思不同。所以同一日出世的寫法born on the same day只有一種寫法。

    When we ask : What date is today?

    Ans : Today is 14/01/2011;

    When we ask : What day is today?

    Ans : Today is Friday.

    1. same date : Mary was borned on the same date as John.

    2. same day: Mary met John on the same day when he broke his leg.

    Both are correct, depends on what you want to say.

    Yes, Jenkin has a point, it's unusual for anyone to say "same date" when it can be better understood as same day or the same date of birth for that matter. But I don't think I've denied in anyway, the same date must be the same day in any calendar month as you've strongly insisted.

    2011-01-08 03:03:36 補充:

    Let's us not stray too much off topic, shall we?

    "same date" do exist in writting
