- Use "Monday,: "Tuesday," etc., for days of the week within seven days before or after
the current date. Use the month and a figure for dates beyond this range. Avoid such
redundancies as "last Tuesday" or "next Tuesday." The past, present or future tense
used for the verb usually provides adequate indication of which Tuesday is meant.
ie. He said he finished the job Tuesday. She will return on Tuesday.

elements is 1) time 2) day 3) place.
