I will be coming from tomorrow onwards.

Is this an accurate way or a phrase to tell someone about the planning and as a promise that from tomorrow onwards, I'll be there?

    If your context is something where you're promising to go somewhere repeatedly (such as attending a regular weekly meeting, starting from tomorrow), then the continuous verb form is at least "acceptable". But even in a context like that, many native speakers would simply use the unmarked infinitive I'll come from tomorrow onwards. If the context is a single one-off "act of attendance" you should definitely use the infinitive form. If the period of attendance is "extended" (you're going to a multi-day event, for example), probably coming simply isn't the best choice of verb. – FumbleFingers Nov 14 '17 at 15:00

  • It may be accurate but it's also ambiguous. If today is Tuesday, do you plan to come tomorrow, and then again every Wednesday after that? In other words, is this a daily commitment, or a weekly one? I can't tell by the way you've worded it, but context could remedy that problem. – J.R. Nov 14 '17 at 16:13

If I understand what you are asking, these sentences would convey the meaning:

I will come tomorrow and from then on.

I will be coming tomorrow and ever day thereafter.

I will be there from tomorrow on.

  • "I will be there" seems the simplest way to express this. – James K Aug 11 '18 at 16:40
  • Yes, and context matters for this. Arriving implies still being there for a time, depending on the circumstances. – user8356 Aug 13 '18 at 12:59

If you speak of anything occurring from a specific time and onwards it can only really refer to something ongoing.

For example:

The party is from 7pm onwards.

This means that the party begins at 7pm and continues. Although that may seem obvious, the implication is that guests may arrive from that time (ie it is not imperitive that you are there exactly at 7pm). Other events would not be advertised that way, for example a show at a theatre which may close the doors once a performance begins at a set time.

In your example:

I will be coming from tomorrow onwards.

This could make sense in the correct context, if:

  • "coming" means regularly attending something, such as a meeting
  • Your attendance begins tomorrow
  • You intend your attendance to continue regularly from tomorrow.

Other ways you could express the same:

I will be attending regularly beginning tomorrow.

I will be attending from tomorrow.

I will attend beginning tomorrow.

I will begin attending after today.

The sentence as it stands is unlikely idiomatic. The way I see the sentence it means, "from tomorrow on 'I will be coming'". By saying "I will be coming" I mean an everlasting action of 'coming'.

If by 'come' you mean "attend" then it's not an appropriate structure. From what I've understood you want to say that "you will come tomorrow and every next day too":

  • I will come to you every day starting tomorrow.

But suppose tomorrow is Friday and the next meeting will take Friday next week and so on then:

  • I will be attending the meeting every Friday starting tomorrow.

For an established that you wish to be started tomorrow and continue, it is best to say:

  • From tomorrow on I will be coming to him every day.
