Hoy vamos a centrarnos en estas tres expresiones que son comunmente confundidas y vamos a lograr que esto no vuelva a pasarnos nunca. Veamos los ejemplos primero:

Creo que con el ejemplo ya quedó claro cuando se usa cada una, ¿no?

Some time: Articulo indeterminado + nombre. Periodo indefinido de tiempo.

Sometimes: Advervbio de frecuencia. De vez en cuando, en ocasiones

Sometime: Adverbio de frecuencia. Alguna vez, en un momento indeterminado del pasado o futuro.
