Loc: Louisville, Kentucky
Hoo boy, I didn't know I'd start a debate--what fun! Let me try to make myself perfectly clearer...where I would say, for ex., "I ate a chip butty (hi, Dody!) every day [last week], [last month], [or last year]", would you-all ever say, "I ate a chip butty every day [week last], [month last], or [year last]."?

> big shoe!
and Jackie won't have heard the last of it until we've all got our tongue around it...
my sole response is matching Bingley...
and my second part (heelo F!) is that it's predominantly a Northern saying.

In reply to:
if it was Monday you would say Tuesday-coming for the next day and Tuesday-next for Tuesday next week.
I would say tomorrow for the next day, and tomorrow week for 8 days' time.
If today is Weds. 22nd and I want to refer to Sunday 26, for clarity's sake I would say 'this coming Sunday', and if I wanted to refer to Sunday 2nd, I would say 'Sunday week'.

You did mean how long did friday last?

Today is Wed the 22nd. Does "this Fri" mean the 24th or the 31st (or the 17th), and what about "next Fri", "Fri next" and "Fri coming"?
When you answer do give your continent as well just for interest.
I know this is similar to Dody's post but I'm not sure who from where answered what.
