Question: How to differentiate between linggo and Linggo in everyday speech?
Take the sentence, "The package will arrive later this week.".
Is it "Darating ang padala mamaya ngayong linggo."?
How would you not confuse that with "mamaya ngayong Linggo / later this Sunday"?

IMHO, most of the confusion will be unraveled within a certain context.
 
If still confused, you may have to ask: Araw ng Linggo?

Can mamaya even be used beyond "today" or a generic later?
 
I think I remember my tutor not accepting me trying to say mamayang taon, lol.
 
The example sentences all point to later (today).

Later this week would not mesh with it from what I can discern.
 
Natives please chime in.

@AMBoy
 
I have also been told by natives that mamaya refers to later that day.
 
Mamayang gabi
 
Mamayang hapon
 
Gano’n

@AMBoy Funny Story how I learned this actually. A Filipino friend asked me to use my Netflix account and I told them “mamaya” (in my head I was thinking “later” in general (later today, tomorrow, next week etc). So later on that night they asked me for the password and I replied saying “ I said later lol” (mamaya) so the replied and told “ya you said “mamaya”” which they then explained to me that it means later today.

@quarter Linggo means Sunday. But linggo means week. Notice the meaning with the capital letter L and the word without a capital L.

@PinoyTaj Linggo always comes after the word "sa", while linggo sometimes comes after the word "ngayong" or "sa isang"
sa isang linggo means next week

@Gahala Reread the original post and you’ll understand my question, I wasn’t literally asking for an explanation.
