I'd like to know the nuance of day.
Can the following sentences, S1 and S2, mean M1?

If they never can, please say 'no.'
If they can in some very specific situation, would you please say 'yes' and give me the situation?

S1: He slept on the day.
S2: He slept in the day.

M1: He slept in the daytime.

Thank you.

    Hi britneyM

    on the day = the date (that we are talking about)

    "I was really looking forward to my birthday, but on the day, I just slept."

    Your other sentences are talking generally about daytime.
