Hi, Gary...

Posted by Sphinx on July 10, 2003

Thanks for your help!
But because I've never seem "from" can be used this way, could you please give antoher example in which "from" shares the meaning with "next"?

And I wonder: if today is Sunday, and someone says "Let's make it a week from Saturday", is he/she referring to next Saturday, or the Saturday after next Saturday?

Thanks!

: 2. "a week from Saturday", refers to the Saturday after next, i.e. not the coming Saturday but the one after that. In the UK at least this is often called "a week on Saturday", which is even less intuitive.
