    Re: adjective or noun

    All your 3 phrases are correct.

    "the yesterday's meeting" and "the yesterday meeting" are interchangeable, in the first phrase "yesterday" is a possessive noun, and in the second one "yesterday" is a noun used as adjective.

    The "meeting of yesterday" is more formal than the other two.
