85. WEEKEND, THE WEEKEND AND THIS WEEKEND? 1. 'weekend'
A weekend consists of a Saturday and the Sunday that comes after it. Sometimes Friday evening is also considered to be part of the weekend. The weekend is the time when most people in Europe, North America, and Australia do not go to work or school.
- I spent the weekend at home....
- Did you have a good weekend? 2. regular events
British English speakers say that something takes place at weekends.
- The beach gets very crowded at weekends. American speakers usually say that something takes place weekends or on weekends.
- He often studies evenings and weekends.
- On weekends I usually sleep late. 3. single events
You can say that an event takes place during a particular weekend.
- Will you be visiting relatives during the holiday weekend? 4. the weekend, this weekend
On a weekday, 'the weekend' or 'this weekend' can refer either to the previous weekend or the following weekend. You can use at, during, or over in front of 'the weekend'. Don't use any preposition in front of this weekend. - Her new film came out at the weekend. (previous weekend)
- I'll call you over the weekend. (following weekend)
- My birthday was this weekend. (previous weekend)
- We might be able to go skiing this weekend. (following weekend) Cited from Collins COBUILD English Usage © HarperCollins Publishers 1992, 2004, 2011, 2012 https://www.thefreedictionary.com/weekend See More

84. Two Thirds Of... Is/Are... ? Two thirds of the workforce is/are women. Can either is or are come with 'two thirds'?... Two thirds is less than 1; then how can a plural verb come with it? ............................................................................................... Here is the general rule: When an '... –of' phrase follows a percentage, distance, fraction, or amount, the verb agrees with the noun closest to the verb. Ex: Half of the tables are occupied. 21% of the population is poor. 21% of the books are paperback Because 2/3 of some number is more than one. For example, two-thirds of 300 is 200. In your example, a workforce would be more than 3 people! (The minimum number that is divisible by 3..) https://www.englishforums.com/…/TwoThirdsOfI…/pbndj/post.htm See More

83. Which Word: especially / specially? Especially usually means ‘particularly’:
- She loves all sports, especially swimming.... It is not placed first in a sentence:
- I especially like sweet things. (Not: Especially I like sweet things.) Specially usually means ‘for a particular purpose’ and is often followed by a past participle, such as designed, developed or made:
- a course specially designed to meet your needs
- She has her clothes specially made in Paris. In British English, especially and specially are often used in the same way and it can be hard to hear the difference when people speak. Specially is less formal:
- I bought this especially/​specially for you.
- It is especially/​specially important to remember this. The adjective for both especially and specially is usually special. https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/…/en…/especially… See More
