    (the) last / (the) next

    Hello,

    IŽd like you to help me get to know when using the article or not. Rules?
    Is there a difference in meaning?

    Last Saturday / The last Saturday

    Cheers,
    Magg

    Re: (the) last / (the) next

    "the" expresses specifics, so

    EX: I'll see you the last Saturday of the month.

    The the adjectives "last" and "next" also specify:

    EX: We met last Saturday and we're going to meet next Saturday, too.

    Why two uses of "the" there?
