1) Does "THE OTHER DAY" mean Friday (Jan 12)?
2) Does "LAST MONDAY" mean Monday (Jan 8) or (Jan 1)?

let's say that today is Sunday Jan 14.

1) Does "THE OTHER DAY" mean Friday (Jan 12)?-- Not necessarily. It means a recent day in the past.

2) Does "LAST MONDAY" mean Monday (Jan 8) or (Jan 1)?-- Monday (Jan 8)
3) Does "NEXT SUNDAY" mean Jan 21, or Jan 28?-- Jan 21
Thanks Mister Micawber.

How else, (aside from mentioning the specific date) can you refer to:

1) Friday Jan 12
2) Sunday Jan 28

1-- (last) Friday
2-- the Sunday after next
Hi. With reference to the Monday. I would actually say. On Monday i went.....

For me last monday refers to the monday before that(8).Not sure why, maybe because this week hasnt finished yet.
Ah, I see, that does make sense. Thanks wvic123.

Thanks! So say if today is Monday and I want to refer to the Saturday that had passed, is it also acceptable to say last Saturday since a new week had already started?
No. Beacuse i'm looking at a week as 7 days, not mon-sun. So i would still use on sat. Have Iconfused you? So if it's mon and I want to refer to the following mon,I would say next monday. This is just how i see it, not sure if it's correct.

I often have the problem with next. eg. It's wed 4th and iagree to see a freind on the friday 6th. Some people say 'see you next Friday'. For me next Friday is the following Friday. I would say 'see you this Friday or on Friday'
