суббота

RussianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old East Slavic субота (subota), from Byzantine Greek σάμβατον, from Ancient Greek σάββατα (sábbata), from Aramaic šabbǝtā or Hebrew שבת (šabbāt). The -бб- arose from the influence of -bb- in the Western languages.

Near cognates: Ukrainian субо́та (subóta); Belarusian субо́та (subóta); Old Church Slavonic сѫбота (sǫbota); Bulgarian съ́бота (sǎ́bota); Serbo-Croatian су́бота.

But also there is Old Church Slavonic собота (sobota) (Czech, Slovak, Polish, Polabian, Lower Sorbian sobota) that is from Middle Latin sabbatum < Old Greek σάββατα.
