Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.: I found it interesting when I learned these words just recently, because it is so metaphorical.

Yesterday = vakardien
Today = šodien
Tomorrow = rītdien

Vakar = evening (associated with past tense)
Rīt = morning (associated with future tense)

Well, there you have it.
Atā.

more: can anybody tell how in latvian you cal the day before yesterday and the day after tomorrow :)
in lithuanian we have:
ryt/rytoj [riit]
* poryt [after tomorrow]
vakar [vakar]
* uzvakar [before yesterday]

so?

I believe the day after tomorrow is 'aizpariit' and perhaps (logically) the day before yeterday is 'aizvakar'.

Tas mums, leitiem, ir viegli, vai ne? :)

100% correct ;)
aizparīt and aizvakar

if you want to add day in future just add 'aiz' so it becomes
'aizaizparīt' (day before day before tomorrow)
actualy never use 3 or more 'aiz'
and 2 'aiz' in past

the day after tomorrow: the day after tomorrow is "parīt", then comes "aizparīt"

lietuvieši latviski: ne "leitiem", bet "leišiem" (dat.)

Jā, tagad es redzu savu vecu kļūdu. Rakstīju to droši vien priekš pusgada :). Latvisks freizbeisa forums ir ļoti tukšs. 'Dzīvo' to! ;)
