So surely "Am bi i a' falbh Latha na Sàbaid" should also be correct?

Apparently Sunday can be either, "Là na Sàbaid" (lah nuh SAH-bidj) or "Didòmhnaich" (ji-DAWV-nuch)

Basically it depends on where you are and whether you are a Catholic or a Protestant. One is the Sabbath Day, the other the Day of the Lord.

You can take your pick

I was marked correctly for latha na sabaid. I'm a Mick.

The 2 vowels together in "bi i" seems awkward to me.
