[English] about next/last + weekday/month
This is a question that I am always confused. I'm not a native English speaker, I think it makes sense to make it clear here.
So now we are Tuesday, 05/05/2015.
- What day is "next Friday"? For me "next Friday" means "Friday next week" (in 10 days), and not the coming Friday this week (in 3 days).
- What day is "last Monday"? For me "last Monday" means "Monday last week", so it is 8 days ago, and not the just passed Monday this week (yesterday).
AM I RIGHT?
Then comes the month.
- Which months is "next August"? For me "next August" means "the August to come", so August 2015, and not "August next year" (August 2016).
- Similar for "last Feb". For me it means Feb 2015, and not Feb 2014.
But then I realize that my interpretations of "next" and "last" for weekday and month are not consistent.
What is in the standard English?
