Etymology[edit]

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