Re: last vs this vs next xxxday
I think you get into trouble with this.
If it's only Thusrday and you say "last Tuesday" I may think you mean the one the week before.
If today is Feb 23 and you say "I saw her Tuesday" then it's clearly in the past, so my assumption is that you mean Feb 21.
If you say "I saw her last Tuesday" I may think you mean Feb 14.
You'll have the same problem about the future.
If today is Feb 20, and you say "I'll see her next Friday" I may think you mean the Friday after next - March 2, while "Ill see her on Friday" clearly means Feb 24.
