this Monday is the first Monday that is less than or equal to 6 days away. (but ambiguous on Mondays)

"Monday week" is the Monday following that.

"next Monday" is ambiguous and should not be used

but if you want to specify the day that is 7 days away, eg if it is Monday the 10th and you want to specify the Monday 17th what should you use? today week?

Since this is a general discussion thread:

My 6yr olds favourite day of the week is Choose-day because he gets to 'choose', followed by Fry-day because we sometimes have fish and chips.

What's your favourite day of the week and why?

If it's part of the current (or "this") 7 day period, the day is "this" - for example, this Friday and this Weekend are both this, as will be this Tuesday. This Thursday, of course, is today. Next Thursday is called such, as it's outside of my 7 day inclusion period.

However, if the day in question falls outside of the nek week (awww gummon)/7 day inclusion period, I refer to the day as next as well. Again, I cite next Thursday as a working example of my Dynamic Time Reference Scale.

Put simply, the subsequent days for the following week, excluding the current day seven days away, which has the same name as today (but is different, obviously) are this. Following days are next. A caveat: Beyond 14 days is anybody's guess, as I don't plan that far ahead.

I'm pleased there's someone who warrants avoiding more then me.

that is just wrong (maybe majority used wrong like ruler) but a thing that occurs every 2 weeks is either fortnightly or semi-weekly

Semi = half. So there is absolutely no argument on that one. You're definitely wrong.
