- there is an event 10 months in the future from today
- I need an appointment with an office in the 6 months leading to that
If I say: "I can book the appointment no more than 3 months in advance",
is it ambiguous?
For me is clear thet it means that the time between the booking and the appointment can't be more than 3 months, but my native speaker SO got confused and says that the sentence is unclear because it could also mean that the appointment can't be booked to be more than 3 months before the event.
If I would have wanted to express this second meaning I think I would say "The appointment can be only in the 3 months before the event"
Can someone please clarify this for me?
