When would you use this Wednesday instead of next Wednesday?
That's like asking would you use brand new car instead of new car.

This is going to the dump by next Monday. If anybody is interested should PM before it's being thrown out. It's almost brand new, beautiful piece.
I cant resist...



This Monday or next Monday?

Even upthread, those who argue with me agree there is a use for this versus next.

Case Closed, Our Leader has spoken.

I may be up for another quick lunchtime DO anywhere in the NYC area next Wednesday at ~1:30pm.

Thoughts for where to go?

On Monday, 9/18, I would use this Wednesday to refer to 9/20.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

They can agree on anything. This has been around forever. Look in the dictionary for the definition of next.

If it is Monday and I say I will pay you "next week" when are you expecting the money?

Does "next" in line mean the first or second person in line?

Does "next" year mean 2018 or 2019?

You refuse to answer simple questions because it does not support your way of thinking.

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Feb 27 was a Wednesday, meaning "Next Wednesday" would have been March 6.

Happy to answer any and all questions
They can agree on anything. This has been around forever. Look in the dictionary for the definition of next.
I'm full aware of what next means. My arguement is that as per @hachover's post above, in this context there is a use for "this" which changes when the "next" one is.
If it is Monday and I say I will pay you "next week" when are you expecting the money?
The following week, any time between 12:00AM Saturday night and 11:59pm Saturday night.
Does "next" in line mean the first or second person in line?
The first.
Does "next" year mean 2018 or 2019?
5779, this Wednesday evening.

And the answer to that is...

On Monday, 9/18, I would use this Wednesday to refer to 9/20.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

You can argue all you want but it doesn't change the facts. You are trying to change the meaning of the word.
