Didòmhnaich and Latha na Sàbaid (Words for Sunday)
Madainn mhath *,
It seems that there are two different words for Sunday (Didòmhnaich and Latha/Là na Sàbaid), which difference seem to be rooted in religious context. Is there any preference learners should focus on? Are there situations in which the use of the wrong word to an audience might be offensive? A recent discussion pointed out that even the use of the formal and unformal "you" is more forgivable nowadays, so maybe that is the same case here?
Tapadh leibh and a good day to you. :-)
Won’t help you myself as I’m not that familiar with Sc. Gaelic vocabulary, but I’ve found an interesting thread about it on Fòram na Gàidhlig (it is generally about synonyms, but starting with the 5th post it deals mainly with the name of Sunday): Fòram na Gàidhlig: Words with same meaning, might be helpful. :)
