Best Answer

No. The preposition "on" creates the illusion that you are on top of something. December is an abstract noun, meaning you cannot touch it. It is a construct. Therefore, you would say, "I will be available in December" or "I will be available come December". Hope this helps!

December is a proper noun, not abstractual. It refers to a definite place in time during a year. It has a name, and specific dates of beginning and ending. It is not a concept.

Olivia it's not cause you're "on top of something", you can say on Saturday. This doesn't work because Saturday's a definite date and Decmeber isn't

That's not a correct answer. "December 15" is also abstract, you can't touch it, it's a construct -- but you DO say "ON December 15". The choice of prepositions to use with dates and times is just idiomatic and you have to learn them; no logic to it.

If you ever met a person named December, then you could technically say this. Perhaps meaning that you can be found atop December, presumably the female. Slightly perverse, but it is the only actual meaning that could exist in the English language for this statement.

You must use the preposition "in" to refer to a month, no exceptions. Anyone can use English as they wish, of course, but if you desire to be understood, you will say "in" or you will be misunderstood. "On" prepositions are used to refer to precise dates or days (December 12th, Wednesday, the 3rd, etc.).

The confusion likely arose from a native speaker of a Slavic language like Russian which uses the "ะฝะฐ" preposition to reference dates in this way. The same language family uses the "in" preposition "ะฒ" in the opposite way as well, indicating precise dates by stating they are available "ะฒ ัั€ะตะดัƒ" (literally: in Wednesday) which is nonsensical in English, but entirely accurate and correct in languages such as Russian, Ukrainian, etc.

No, "on", means you're on top of something. You can't be "on top" of December, because it is not a physical thing. Using "in" would be more appropriate in this case. Because you can be "in" December, just like you can be "in" a dream. "In" points out being "inside" something.

-I hope this helped you sort things out a bit - between using "on" or "in". I am not American, so I'm also still learning. (And between you and me, I also still get "on" and "in" mixed up sometimes). I hoped this was helpful!

I shall be available in December .

When referrimng top the first person , it is 'shall' . The second or third person is 'will' e.g. I/we shall, You /they Will .

The use of the word 'on' is for use with concrete nouns ( a solid tangible object

You can say anything you like, just watch a little television news channel, regardless of you political PoV, and you will hear allegedly educated individuals, some from Ivy League schools, butcher even basic rules of English grammar, even if the opening in a four-door automobile that holds the luggage is called a boot.... Otherwise, I agree with Olivia if one is trying to be precise and make a good impression with a potential employer or in a professional setting.

Absolutely. You may make any mistake you like, even mimic those who have made errors for whatever reason. However, the mistake is so blatant, so egregious, so basic that to use "on December" in that way would mark the speaker as an incompetent speaker.

No. There's the slightest chance you'll be available on December, unless your stating a day? Then.. The answer is still no. Unless you don't get into a relationship before or before the day in December which you think you'll be available in.

The answer is no. I do not understand your point about a relationship. But, the answer is no. The simplest solution is to add a date after December and then the statement is grammatical.

No you can not say that. the correct way will be 'I will be available in December'. But you can say that only if you mention a specific date .For example: 'I will be available on the 13th of December'
