    Days of a week in Filipino

    Linggo(Sunday) is the only day of a week in the Philippines that is not a Spanish word. The days of a week in Filipino are Lunes(Monday), Martes(Tuesday), Miyerkules(Wednesday), Huwebes(Thursday), Biyernes(Friday), Sabado(Saturday) and Linggo(Sunday).

    Linggo was derived from the Malay word Minggu which also means Sunday. And Minggu was derived from the Portuguese word domingo which also means Sunday. Domigo is also used by Spain to call their Sunday.

    Lunes in Filipino came from the Spanish word lunes. Martes came from the Spanish word martes. Miyerkules came from the Spanish word miércoles. Huwebes came from the Spanish word jueves. Biyernes came from the Spanish word viernes. And Sabado came from the Spanish word sábado.
