Недела sounds almost exactly the same as "niedziela" in Polish, except here it means Sunday. I keep making these silly mistakes.
Is there any actual linguistic link? It's funny because in Tagalog (aka Filipino), the word for sunday and for week is exactly the same: linggo
Why is it недели? Isn't the genitive plural form of неделя actually недель?
I think it is because genitive singular is used for the numbers (ending in) 2,3 and 4 and genitive plural is used for bigger ones although I am relatively new to the Russian language
