Hi everyone:

I do not know if I can use the following sentence to refer "be around 10 o'clock"

I will be at home at 10 or so

I will be at home at 10 or earlier

Thank you

    Normally, I'd say something like

    'I'll be at home around/about 10 or so'

    'I'll be at home around/about 10 or earlier'

    'I'll be at home around/about 10-ish'

    These would be said to someone who is asking you if you will be at home at a certain time. If you were leaving the house and telling someone when you will be back, leave out the preposition 'at' before 'home' i.e.

    'I'll be home about 10-ish'
