"I like summer"?


"I like summer"?
Wel, here �s is something one of my students asked me about last Monday. Tell me what you think: You can say "I like the summer" or "I like summers" but can we say "I like summer"? I think I �ve heard it sometimes but I can �t tell whether it is grammatically correct or not.

Yes, it is correct. 

12 Oct 2010     


Yes. That �s very commonly heard.
I don �t like winter.
I like summer.

I like summer is talking about the general season. Yet I liked THE summer would refer to the summer just passed (unless specified of another year : eg I liked the summer of 1978) Hope it helps Smile
