I am an indian.
Today I called a receptionist.
She told me that I must submit my form by today.
I was shocked and so I said “What?Today itself?”
She said “Yes today only”
I know both of us are wrong grammatically.Natives dont say today itself/today only.So what I(and She) should have said?
“Today only” means “Today is the only day that you can submit it.” You will often find it in advertising: “Today only! All fish at half price!”
