I just got into this arguments over traffic lights. If I'm halfway down a block, is the "next light" the one .5 blocks down or 1.5 blocks down?
iThink. Ergo. iAm

"The next" and "next" are different.

The next Wednesday is the the very next Wednesday we will have, which is Sep 20. "Next" Wednesday is the Wednesday after this Wednesday, which is Sep 27.

IOW, This Wednesday, and the next Wednesday are the same day - Sep 20.
Next Wednesday is Sep 27.

1) Wednesday, Sep 20
2) Wednesday, Sep 27

#1.

But if you asked me again on Monday Sept 18th, then my answer would be #2

"Next" Wednesday implies the one that is next week
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

When is this Wednesday? Is it the same date as next Wednesday?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

No. This Wednesday is this coming up Wednesday, Sep 20. Next Wednesday is the one after that.
