EtymologyEdit

Either inherited from Vulgar Latin *sambata, from sambatum, from Latin sabbatum, or alternatively from Proto-Slavic *sǫbota (or influenced by it). The Latin is derived from Ancient Greek σάββατον ‎(sábbaton), ultimately from Hebrew שַׁבָּת ‎(shabát). Compare French samedi, itself also from *sambatī diēs. Compare also Dalmatian sabata, Ladin sabeda, Friulian sabide, Romansch sonda, sanda, somda.

NounEdit

sâmbătă f ‎(plural sâmbete)

  1. Saturday
