If you read the final part of my post you’ll see that I believe that the word “week” has been dropped from the phrase(something that’s not uncommon in English) so “this week Monday” or “next week Monday” is possibly where it started but in some areas has morphed into the confusing “this” and “next” we have now. Dictionary definition of “next”–“(of a time) coming immediately after the time of writing or speaking.” and Weeks are ambiguous, though. Personally, I feel that a calendar week runs from Monday to Sunday. At least in American culture, we all refer to the 2 day weekEND. I think our traditional calendar here shows Sunday as the first day of the week because of a biblical reference. But even if we all agree that the next week starts after a weekend, there’s still the problem of calendar week vs. current 7 day period beginning with today. When one says next week, they could either be referring to this coming Monday through Sunday period, because they would refer to the current Monday through Sunday period as this week. Or, they could be referring to 7-13 days from now. It all depends on what a person is currently meaning by the word week. Week can’t be standardized, but should be understood by context.

Then I remembered that one of the maxims of Marxism is “From each according to his ability and to each according to his need” This is the surest way to building a just and egalitarian society. The apostolic fathers tried it (communalism/communism) but failed due to human greed (capitalism) and unfaithfulness as epitomised by the couple in this bible story. “So you can see that greed is also one of the major problems why corruption waxes stronger and stronger in your midst. And once a problem persists for far too long, it develops strong tap roots, wide branches to accommodate all manner of patrons and all of this work together to entrench themselves. Two consequences arise from these” Then I wondered what these could be. As if He read the thoughts of my heart, He answered: “They become very difficult to uproot. They flourish and taunt the upright. They produce fruits after their own kind and reduce the space available for contrary opinion to sprout, not to talk of flourishing” And then I remembered the Marxist maxim that “the dominant idea in any society is the idea of the ruling class”. Their culture is the dominant culture; their law, the dominant law and their decadence rubs off on everyone. This also works for talking about the day or week before last, and the day or week after next. There are no holes in this procedure. There are holes in every other way that people are using next and last. Reply My point is that with understanding of what next actually means, it is not ambiguous. As you pointed out, the definition is that the next one is the one that follows THIS one. As long as we use THIS for this coming and this past, the days referred to as LAST and NEXT are perfectly clear. Your dictionary apparently used the word PRESENT, but on Thursday, Sunday coming doesn’t really work as PRESENT. If you say, I would like to go shopping on present Sunday, people would probably figure out that you mean this coming Sunday, but it makes much more sense to say this coming Sunday (this Sunday, for short), as on Thursday, it’s not presently any day but Thursday, which we would simply refer to as TODAY. Like I said, we always use tense in these situations, and if we also use THIS, we are always clear about the exact day. Then when we add in LAST & NEXT (to THIS), we can also be perfectly clear that last is just previous to this past, and next is just after this coming. No need to refer to the ambiguous WEEK.

DBH: The Future | ELOSaniturri - […] mix tenses: Exercise 1, Exercise 2, Exercise 3, Exercise 4, Exercise […] There is sometimes disagreement among English speakers when labelling days in a sequence with this and next, and you may hear people say either this or next to refer to the coming day. If you study sequences of time more carefully, it can help you to understand why this is, and how you can clarify what an English speaker means by, for example “This Friday” or “Next Friday.” For days, this causes confusion because the day is not an object that we can see coming in the same way as a bus. So for many people next Friday would refer to the coming Friday. However, this is actually a less common use – and normally next Friday means the Friday in the following week. Consider these two sentences: You’re very uncompromising straight talking almost to the point of aggression but I don’t take offence on this!

We should mention another important use of the present tense for relating the future, and one that students sometimes get wrong. A present tense – often the present simple – is used for talking about future events in phrases that contain words relating to time, such as when, after and until. Yet another future tense is the future perfect (will have + v-ed). We use this tense for an action that will be completed by a particular point in the future: We use the future perfect to talk about the duration of a situation until a certain time in the future. Trong câu thường có những từ sau: Already, not…yet, just, ever, never, since, for, recently, before… As you can see in the examples above, we often use the future continuous with time expressions such as:

Future perfect: signal words

Here are the things that actually solve the problem. The definition of last is the one that occurs just prior to this one, and the definition of next is the one that occurs just after this one. Since we always speak with tense, if we refer to the future, this Sunday will always be the upcoming Sunday. So on Thursday, if you say you want to go shopping this Sunday, we all know that you mean 3 days from now. Therefore, if instead you say that you want to go shopping next Sunday, we can all know that you mean the Sunday after this upcoming Sunday, 10 days from now. Otherwise, you would have said This Sunday. Likewise, if you say that you WENT shopping THIS Sunday, we can all know that you went 4 days ago. And if you say that you went shopping LAST Sunday, you mean that you went shopping 11 days ago. Using the word THIS for the day that falls in the rolling week that applies to your tense solves the problem. This coming Sunday is 100% clear to everyone. This past Sunday is 100% clear to everyone. So if you properly use next as the Sunday that follows this Sunday, and last as the Sunday that preceeded this Sunday, there is no confusion. People simply need to use this, next and last, correctly. The confusion is really that many people don’t understand that next is not the one that is immediately upcoming. Next means the one that occurs just after THIS one.

I don’t think your cumbersome solution of resorting to a calendar as often as that would be necessary with your system, is pragmatic. Being that the system I’ve described is flawless, and simple when followed, mine is the pragmatic solution. Hopefully you’ll come to understand these things over time and not find them confusing anymore. BATX: FUTURE TENSES | ELOSaniturri - […] mix tenses: Exercise 1, Exercise 2, Exercise 3, Exercise 4, Exercise […] The issue is that not everyone has the same understanding and the strict meaning of this and next isn’t used always used here. As for sennight, according to quotes in the OED, sennight, one of its uses is the same as that of week, as described above.

The way we describe the tenses can very much depend on our purpose and particular schools of thinking – some grammars define it as twelve tenses (as I present in my own book) to show the 3 times, past, present and future, and their four forms, but others would describe this as two or three tenses (past and present as the only ‘morphological’ tense, and future as a tense using auxiliaries), with four ‘aspects’ each. On the other extreme, there are ways to describe other particular functions as tenses, too, so it really depends on how much detail we wish to go into. When it comes to British vs US, there are differences, yes – most generally it comes between how we use simple vs continuous or how we use the perfect tenses – though these will also vary within the countries so I wouldn’t venture to give a definitive list. The differences aren’t especially dramatic, though, and shouldn’t have a huge impact on meaning; it will often occur when we might consider the tense use fairly flexible anyway.

We can use phrases like by or by the time (meaning 'at some point before') and in or in a day's time / in two months' time / in five years' time etc. (meaning 'at the end of this period') to give the time period in which the action will be completed.
