Found 20th Jun 2008Made hot 24th Jun 2008
Just a heads up John Lewis have a Clearance sale starting on Saturday the 28th June the link will give you a preview,they tend to only have 2 sales a year one in the middle and one on boxing day,when they reduce items they can be very good value for money especially the TV's which still have a 5 year guarantee with them.It is worth looking online on the day or visiting a shop if you have one locally.

I cannot seem to add an image of the clearance banner if a mod could try for me thanx

It's funny, but I always argue with the missus about that sort of thing. I always say THIS saturday for the forthcoming one this week, and LAST saturday for the previous one during last week. I would say NEXT saturday for the saturday that would be coming next week (in this case the one on the 5th of July). So I suppose I would go with the OP on this one.

Echoing smidav's post, I would never be so [email protected] as to pull a poster up on it even if I thought his grammar was wrong. Especially not without a :thumbsup: to make it clear I was joking.

This Saturday would be correct.

Next Saturday will be 5th July.

Next Saturday and This Saturday would be the same thing in my view!

If today was Saturday then the next Saturday wouldn't be THIS Saturday it'll be the next one.

Saturday Week would be the Saturday after the next one.

Now, See this.......forum.wordreference.com/sho…415

That'll REALY blow your mind if you are able to read/understand it all.

That's a great link! Obviously it is all down to opinions and interpretations, but I must say that your suggestion that 'Next' and 'This' Saturday would be the same is just plain wrong. :?Incidentally the wife also shares your (mistaken) opinion. Saying 'this' sat is clearly suggesting that you relate your days to their respective week. Consequently, 'next' sat would imply the sat of next week (as I would naturally presume you are consistent in your use of weeks as your frame of reference).

I hope that clears that up then. :whistling:

What a load of hassle!

"A week on Saturday"

Fixed :-D

Was in JL Edinburgh the other day for the first time in ages, it's a pity the prices are so stupid, the overall ambience is decent, until you ruin it by getting your game face on for the price match wars :evil:.

Not quite because to state that there is a 'This' saturday would automatically, by default, imply that there should be a 'That' Saturday which also makes no sense unless 'That' Saturday would be referring to the previous one.
If you have a diagram of the month showing the days then you could happily & quite correctly, point to a Saturday and refer to it as This, That & so on but speaking of a day that is a forthcoming event without symbolising or using a diagram of any kind, Is wrong. You simply cannot refer to any Saturday accurately as 'This' Saturday since it has no reference.

Also when do you hear anyone refer to 'this 8'oclock? You could say next 8 o'clock or last 8 o'clock (Although you wouldn't unless you are referring to the markings on a timepiece, or the markings on a calendar in which case 'this 8 o'clock is also acceptable') but not 'this' when referring to time and that is what you are doing with 'this Saturday'.

'Next Saturday' is the forward (progressive) statement, on from 'Last Saturday' but 'This Saturday' is slang and doesn't make any sense unless it is an abbreviation of 'This Saturday coming'.

This Saturday coming is the next Saturday to arrive

Therefore THIS Saturday = NEXT Saturday. Do you understand now?

Funny, Someone else I was talking to, like yourself, also once wrongly believed what you think to be true.:whistling:

Umm, except that would be wrong. This Saturday is the Saturday of the week you are in and next Saturday is the Saturday of the following week.

That's the way I have always understood it and IMO it's not really all that ambiguous.

This Saturday = 28th June.
Next Saturday = 5th July.

Have you looked at the preview? Almost everything is out of stock :w00t::x

But its an unsaid thing that "this" week is the week we are in, therefore "this" Saturday or any other day is the Saturday within the week we are in.

"Next" saturday relates to the Saturday within "next week".

More correct would be just to say "Saturday" and drop the "this".

Last Saturday
Saturday
Next Saturday.

Theres no point saying Next saturday on Friday and meaning tomorrow as that would confuse everyone, or 99% of people.

By the way, as the sale hasn't started yet, JL show everything as out of stock, they will add the stock on the morning of the sale.

now ON.

Thanks to withabix for the timely pointer
