I want to say I would like to hold a meeting on the Friday after this Friday but do not know what the natural sentences are.

Here's my take:

Let's have a meeting on Friday next week.

Let's have a meeting (on) next week's Friday.

Let's have a meeting (on) next Friday.

Let's have a meeting on Friday after this (Friday)

Parentheses mean the word is optional or better still obmitted.

Thanks in advance

Hi New2gammar,

I think I'll say 'Let's have a meeting next Friday'.

Cheers,

Actually that's my least favorable one because the grammar book says it means the coming Friday which is not what I want, though I believe it could mean the Friday after this.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
The easiest way to eliminate ambiguity is to mention the date -- "Let's have a meeting on Friday the 27th." Other posibilites:

"a week from Friday"

"Friday of next week"

"Friday, next week" (with a comma)

"next week, on Friday" (also with a comma)
How about "Friday week"?

Isn't it another possibility? (at least in BrE)

<<How about "Friday week"?>> Huh! I never heard of that!

Personally, I would say "Let's have a meeting on the Friday after this...."

Hi,

I didn't make it up Emotion: smile ... I hear natives say that, and I don't think it's a regional (Welsh) thing, since I've just found it in two dictionaries.

Here's what [url=http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=89636&dict=CALD ] Cambridge Adv. [/url] says (definition no.3):

"3 one week after the day mentioned:
The first performance of the play is a week today/tomorrow.
Our holiday starts a week on Saturday.
She has to go back to see the doctor Friday week."

And here's an excerpt from the OALD (entry: week)

"IDIOM: today, tomorrow, Monday, etc. 'week (BrE) (also a week (from) to'day, etc. NAmE, BrE)
seven days after the day that you mention:
I’ll see you Thursday week "

Cheers! Emotion: smile
Hi guys,

How about "Friday week"?
