Names Of Months And Weekdays In Your Language

Tue Sep 02, 2003 6:19 am

Well, how months and weekdays are called in your language (also you could explain the direct meaning of the word or why months/weekdays are called so)?
In Lithuanian:

Months:
January - Sausis (Probably comes from word Sausas, meaning dry)
February - Vasaris (Vasara means summer, but probably it is called so not because of this)
March - Kovas (Kovas is a bird)
April - Balandis (Balandis is also a bird (dove))
May - Gegužė (Gegužė is also a bird - not sure why all spring months are called after birds)
June - Birželis (Not sure what it means. Biržai is a city in north Lithuania, but I doubt it's related)
July - Liepa (Liepa is a tree which blooms in this month)
August - Rugpjūtis (Rugiai+Pjūtis - "Rugiai" means "Crops" and "Pjūtis" means "Harvest")
September - Rugsėjis (Rugiai+Sėti - "Rugiai" means "Crops" and "Sėti" means "to plant")
October - Spalis ("Spalis" means dry log, used to make campfires)
November - Lapkritis (Lapai+Kristi - "lapai" means "leafs" and "kristi" means "to fall")
December - Gruodis (Not sure what it means)

Weekdays:
Monday - Pirmadienis (litterally "firstday")
Tuesday - Antradienis (secondday)
Wednesday - Trečiadienis (thirdday)
Thursday - Ketvirtadienis (fourthday)
Friday - Penktadienis (fifthday)
Saturday - Šeštadienis (sixtday)
Sunday - Sekmadienis (sacredday)

How are they callled in your language?

Sonic:

Birželis is named for the birch? Gruodis is named for lumps of frozen earth, or something like that? I don't know about Vasaris either, but possibly it has the same origin as pavasaris?

Hebrew

Hebrew days are translated (from Sunday) as "The First Day", "The Second Day", and so on untill "The Sixth Day". The seventh day is Satuday and called Shabat, or Sabbath.

Yom Reeshon - Sunday
Yom Shen-ee Monday
Yom Shlee-shee Tuesday
Yom Revee-ee Wendsay
Yom Hamee-shee Thursday
Yom Shee-shee Friday
Shabat Saturday

Hebrew months operate on the Lunar Calendar so there is no english translation.

I'm from the Basque region of Spain. Here's their take (Euskara, the local language)...

Astelehena : Monday
Asteartea : Tuesday
Asteazkena : Wednesday
Osteguna : Thursday
Ostirala : Friday
Larunbata: Saturday
Igandea : Sunday

Urtarrila : January
Otsaila : February
Martxoa : March
Apirila : April
Maiatza : May
Ekaina : June
Uztaila : July
Agorrila : August
Iraila : September
Urria : October
Azaroa : November
Abendua : December

How are they for a change?! Basque is completely unique - its roots can't be traced. Any names which seem similar to English or Spanish are because the true Basque words were lost when Franco ordered the burning of all texts and the language's usage to be banned.

Bobrayner, it could be so for Birželis (in Lithuanian birch is "beržas"), you are right. As for Gruodis, I am not sure actually - I do not know any word which would mean lumps of frozen earth sounding like this in Lithuanian. But, however, this word may be already extinct or it was taken from other languages at some time.

PHX-LJU, in Lithuanian however those months are what is generally used. Not sure why is it so, since most of other languages calls Christian months more or less the same (january/janeiro/januari/janvar/etc.) it seems. Even Latvians, other Balts, also uses names like those for months. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Lithuania was last European state to Christianise (Samogitia was the last to tell the truth, but it's now part of Lithuania and Lithuania was second last).

GoAround, how words could have been lost in regime which lasted just 36 years (there must have been people who born certain time before ragime and lived through it)? Or was Basque language already not used prior to Franco regime? Lithuanian language was banned (and nothing written in this language permitted) back in XIX age for more than half a century during first Russian occupation, and it's use was also restricted during second Russian (Soviet) occupation (language was not used in places like cinemas, army, official government offices, etc.), but we now still speak Lithuanian and no words are lost.

The same was true in Slovenia until the early 20th century, when Slovenian versions of the common Latin months (januar, februar, marec, april, maj, junij, julij, avgust, september, oktober, november, december) became standard.

However, the months I listed in Reply 9 are still seen as genuine "Slovenian months" -- some would like to re-introduce them and they are becoming somewhat more common now than they were years ago. Interestingly, neighboring Croatia (also Roman Catholic, BTW) only uses its traditional months -- never the Latin ones.

Taken from our Swedish (my parent's heritage) wall calendar:

Söndag = Sunday
Måndag
Tisdag
Onsdag
Torsdag
Fredag
Lördag = Lord's day = Saturday

Januari
Februari
Mars
April
Maj
Juni
Juli
Augusti
September
Oktober
November
December

As you can see, it's quite similar to English with "i" instead of "y" in a few...

In Catalonian (spoken in East Spain) :

Weekdays :
Dilluns, Dimarts, Dimecres, Dijous, Divendres, Dissabte, Diumenge .

Months :
Gener. Febrer. Març. Abril. Maig. Juny. Juliol. Agost. Setembre. Octubre. Novembre. Desembre.


Any names which seem similar to English or Spanish are because the true Basque words were lost when Franco ordered the burning of all texts and the language's usage to be banned.

O Jesus, this is not even false but completely absurd. So you mean that Spanish or French words had not penetrated Euskera before 1936? And if Franco burnt all texts, how can we read today the works of Pedro de Axular (XVII Century priest)? And how was an Academy of the Basque Language operative during all Franco Regime? Please do not spread this blatantly false BS.

Isn´t that more a transliteration of the German names? Considering Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at that time.

Post-Revolution France:

Vendèmiaire (22.Sept.- 21.Okt.)
Brumaire (22.Okt. - 20.Nov.)
Frimaire (21.Nov. - 20.Dez.)
Nivôse (21.Dez. - 19.Jan.)
Pluviôse (20.Jan. - 18.Febr.)
Ventôse (19.Febr.- 19.März)
Germinal (20.März - 18.April)
Florèal (19.April- 18.Mai)
Prairial (19.Mai - 17.Juni)
Messidor (18.Juni - 17.Juli)
Thermidor (18.Juli - 16.Aug.)
Fructidor (17.Aug. - 16.Sept.)
+ five or six leap days called "Sansculottides"

True; as you can see, they are closely based on the German spellings (Because of its Austro-Hungarian past, Slovene has quite a few German influences). But they themselves have Latin origins -- that's why I referred to them as "Latin months."

I've listed down Croatian and Polish names
with correct characters in brackets to avoid code page problems:

It is also interesting to notice that some names of months are same in Croatian, Polish and Slovenian but they do not mean the same month but differ by one
Prosinac 12th CRO, Prosinec 1st SLO
Listopad 10th CRO, Listopad 11th POL


Croatian
Days (explanations sam as for Slovenian):
Ponedjeljak
Utorak
Srijeda
Cetvrtak {Četvrtak}
Petak
Subota

Nedjelja
Months:
Sijecanj {Siječanj}
Veljaca {Veljača}
Ozujak {Ožujak}
Travanj
Svibanj
Lipanj
Srpanj
Kolovoz
Rujan
Listopad
Studeni
Prosinac

Polish (notice the similarity again):
days
Poniedzialek (Poniedziałek)
Wtorek
Sroda (środa)
Czwartek
Piatek (Piątek)
Sobota
Niedziela

Months:
Styczen
Luty
Marzec
Kwiecien
Maj

Thai

January - Mokkarakom
February - Koompapun
March - Meenakom
April - Maysayon
May - Prusapakom
June - Mitunayon
July - Karakadakom
August - Singhakom
September - Kunyayon
October - Tulakom
November - Prusajikayon
December - Tunwakom

In Thai, months ending with 'kom's have 31 days and 'yon's have 30 days. While the odd February end with something different. No idea if there are any meanings behind these names though.

Monday - Wun Chun (Moon day)
Tuesday - Wun Angkan (Mars day)
Wednesday - Wun Poot (Mercury day)
Thursday - Wun Paruhud (Venus day.. or is it Neptune)
Friday - Wun Sook (Jupiter day)
Saturday - Wun Sao (Saturn day)
Sunday - Wun Atith (Sun day - d'oh!)

I might have the Jupiter and Venus/Neptune mixed up - but that's all I can recall for now.

Does anybody know what the named of the months in English (and most European languages) really mean?

I know that July was named to honor Julius Caesar.
And August - Augustus.

And September, October, November, December are all weird Latin ways to tell that it is 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th month respectively - assuming the old Roman way of counting March as the first month.

And March is named to recognize the Roman God of War - and the planet - Mars.

But what about the other five months?

Janus

Februus, some Roman god. Plus februare means "to cleanse", and during that month the cleansing sacrifices were offered

aperire means "to open" - beginning of spring

Iuppiter Maius, Roman head honcho god "Jupiter the Greatest"

Juno - his missus

Aaah, the joys of having a classic humanist education with Latin as first foreign language...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy


And, before anyone enquires about the weekdays:

Moon

Tiu/Siu/Ziu - Germanic god of war

Wotan/Odin - Germanic god of winds; that dude´s horse, named Sleipnr had eight legs, btw. Talk about a bad ass mutation...

Thor/Donar - Germanic god of lightning, thunder and hail; motto: "If I had a hammer..."

Freia/Freya/Frija/Frigga - Germanic goddess of love, Odin´s wife; note that also the roman languages have this day related to the goddess of love, Venus: Vendredi in French, Viernes in Spanish

Saturn

Sun

In Korea, the months don't have names, they are just numbers..., which is used also internationally.. like September is 9..

Weekdays, with the meanings of the words..
Monday - Woryoil (Moon)
Tuesday - Hwayoil (Fire)
Wednesday - Sooyoil (Water)
Thursday - Mokyoil (Wood(tree))
Friday - Kumyoil (Gold(metal))
Saturday - Toyoil (Soil(ground))
Sunday - Ilyoil (Sun)

Not so special but here are the Swiss German weekdays, months are the same as in german, although pronounced a little different. Well, days are actually the same as well, but here the difference is at least noticeable in the writing...


Mäntig
Ziischtig
Mitwuch
Dunschtig
Friitig
Samschtig
Sunntig

The prounoncation is different in almost every city...

I wanted to bring you the Finnish weekdays and months, we had once a calendar in that language, but appearently it's gone... shame

Rabi-us-Sani
Jamadi-ul-Awal
Jamadi-us-Sani

Zial-Qad
Zial-Hajj

Days (starting from Sunday)
Itwar
Peer
Mungal
Budh
Jummah-Rat
Jummah
Hafta

Well, as Miquel Migjhlussdid it in catalan before I could, I'm going to post them in Greek.

Nevertheless, let me introduce two corrections first:

December is written "Desembre", and September is "Setembre", without "p".

For the russian version, it could be interesting to have the pronounciation, I'm going to put a transliteration according to spanish phonetics, it can differ in english:

Yanbáriya
Fevrálliya
Márta
Apréll (two LL like in "casteLLano")
Mái
Iyúniya
Iyúliya
Áfgusta
Septiyábriya
Aktiyábriya
naiyábriya
Dekábriya

Pañiyédellink
Ftórink
SRyédu
Tchyétverg
Piyátnitchu
subótu
baskresyéñe

And the promised greek, again with transliteration into spanish phonetics, and written in small and capital letters

δευτέρα ΔΕΥΤΕΡΑ, literally "second" in feminin, since "ημέρα" (day) is a feminin word in greek
τρίτη ΤΡΙΤΗ, third
τετάρτη ΤΕΤΑΡΤΗ, fourth
πέμπτη ΠΕΜΠΤΗ, fifth
