    My congratulations! Tomorrow is Tuesday, the day, named after the Gog of war.
    Please, check our motto for this week. SKIKDA suggested the winner to be a shark!
    Sweet dreams.

Since I am from Peru, a latin country, I knew about names of the days and their origin.
Now I know that there is a relation between the English and Spanish names of the days too.
Thank you very much

In Moldavian (Roumanian) the weekdays have such names: Luni /Lun’/- Monday from Luna- Moon, Month; Marti /Marts’/- Tuesday; Miercuri /M’erkur’/- Wednesday; Joy/Zhoi/ -Thursday; Vineri /Viner’/- Friday. In Russian such days like Vtornik (Tuesday), Chetverg (Thursday) and Pyathitsa (Friday) are named after their order numbers, but Voskresenie (Sunday) is named after Resurrection (of Christ),Ponedelnik (Monday)means the day after Sunday. Sreda (Wednesday)has the word Middle (Seredina) in its root.

Very interesting lesson! Sunday is called Domenica in Italian, after the coming of Christianity. Indeed “dies Solis” (Sun’s day) has been changed in “dies dominica” (Lord’s day). Instead Saturday is called Sabato from Jewish word “shabbāt” (day of rest), a little bit unexpectedly. This root is in all the romance languages.

    …and don’t forget to say that in Italy, Monday is the FIRST day of the week!

As on the typical English phrase or sentence, “Oh my god!” which would mean “surprise”, I am in doubt with the idea of “token female” because I haven’t listened to this question before, it was my main concern in the questionary but anyhow, this lesson has been funny and amused, we have learnt this curious topic of the days of the week, its etymology, it was very interesting. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, a very good explanation.

Hi Gill, why is the Sunday the first day in Britian. In my language and culture is the first day the Monday. In Slovak language (and in all slavic languages) is the Thursday called the fourthday (4.day) and Friday the fifth day (5.day). It means, we have counted the days form Monday to Sunday for thousands years.

Saturday = Samedi (French) . It is coming from sabbat or Shabbat which is the seventh day of the week. The Shabbat is the Judaism’s day of rest.

Hi Gill. I have a special request for you! Could you do a topic about Compound words? Thanks, Adam.

Thank you gill. It was really fantastic lesson.
In japan, all days of the week are named after planets.
Sunday sun, Monday moon, Tuesday mars, Wednesday mercury, Thursday Jupiter, Friday Venus, Saturday Saturn. I don’t know why, but it might be similar reason to English and Southern Europe.

Hello, everyone! Thank you, Gill! It was fascinating as well as instructive. But my question is about ‘token female’… Can somebody explain to me what it means?
And yeah… Ivanka… I’m still laughing..

Hello Gill .
Thank you for this lesson .
God of gods in the Roman mythology is Jupiter . Jove is the latin name of Jupiter. So Jeudi in french is the. Day of Jupiter . In French each day is for a god and a Planet except for Dimanche which has replaced “soles dei” ( sun’s day) after Jesus Christ came .
Just a kind thought for Venus the only woman among a men’s world . Why god is not a woman and men tokens ?
See you

Dear Gill,

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on this amazing lesson. I really appreciate your historic videos, and I hope you make many others. It is so interesting to know the origins of the words because we can understand better our culture and how it is linked with other cultures. That’s fantastic!!

Well, I would like to use this opportunity to make a question (it is a completely different topic). Which is the correct sentence: “My brother and I” or “My brother and me”? Or both of them are correct? Could I say “Me and my brother”?

Thank you in advance. I regard you a brilliant teacher!

Until next time!

Good morning Professor Jill,
I came across your lecture regarding the names of the days of the week, the names of the months of the year; and the names of the planets while watching videos on YouTube.
I am in awe at the findings in your teachings and would like your permission to publish these lessons in a book that I will be publishing soon, as this will profoundly impact people’s knowledge. There are many more videos on this subject that popped up when I went into your videos; so in order to give you full credit; I would like your written permission to use it, your photograph with the lecture to give you full credit, and a little of your educational background to prove that you are a professional teacher. I will contribute to the Invid.com program as soon as the revenue for my book comes in; but if you disagree to the publication of your teachings; I understand and thank you for the knowledge that I have acquired about the ancient gods.
I look forward to your response and if you prefer to have a more private conversation, please send me your personal email and I will respond.

Hi, Gill! I found EngVid 2 months ago and could not stop binge-watching videos here since. But I have avoided to watch your videos until recently because they seemed too difficult for me. Then I checked this video and was surprised how easy it was for me to listen and understand counting that I don’t know the topic at all. I can’t wait to check the rest of your vids!

I also have a kind of suggestion for you or other Engvid teachers. Could you please make a video about history and etymology of English names, surnames and place names? This topic is so fascinating <3
