Well, obviously the game hasn't already happened. The question is whether the Tuesday the game will happen a week from is last Tuesday or next Tuesday.
It's definitely next Tuesday, which means the game will take place in more than a week.
If today is Sunday, the game will take place in 9 days (not in 2).
I would assume she means the Tuesday after th Tuesday coming - i.e., It's presently Saturday the 10th. Tuesday coming will be the 13th, and the Tuesday for which she is offering the tickets, is therefore the 20th.It's Saturday. I've got tickets to the game a week from Tuesday.What "Tuesday" does the speaker have in mind, the previous Tuesday or the next Tuesday? Or can't it be inferred from the above alone?
Why?Panj, I understand that "next Tuesday" and "this Tuesday" can be ambiguous, but certainly "a week from Tuesday" can only mean "a week from the upcoming Tuesday"?
Because in that case I'd expect you to say "Tuesday" or "next Tuesday" or "this Tuesday."Why?
If I said I'll see you a week from Tuesday, how do you know I'm not talking about a week from yesterday (which was a Tuesday).
- or maybe meBecause in that case I'd expect you to say "Tuesday" or "next Tuesday" or "this Tuesday."
If you meant a week from yesterday, I would expect you to say "a week from last Tuesday" (or "yesterday" in this case, but let's say you said it tomorrow).
To me, "a week from Tuesday" always refers to a future Tuesday.
But maybe it's just me.
Hmmm...A week on Tuesday and Tuesday week are, perhaps, more likely to be misunderstood than a week from Tuesday?
