    You can't acknowledge receipt of something tomorrow. You can only do that after you have actually received it.

    In Hindi and Urdu, the word for yesterday is the same as the word for tomorrow, "kal".

    It must cause a lot of confusion.

    How is this differentiated in use?

    The tense of the verb gives the meaning, future tense indicates tomorrow and past tense indicates yesterday.
