Day wheels other than English

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia »

Setting up the Monster I noted with some pleasure that the second language is Spanish:

LUN - MAR - MIE - JUE - VIE - SAB - DOM

Image

I've heard of these in French, German, Italian and I had an Orient with Arabic, but flipped it. What other ones do people have?

This could form the basis for an interesting sub-collection some day! The one I'd really like is Portuguese:

SEG - TER - QUA - QUI - SEX - SAB - DOM

I would guarantee to wear that every Friday!! :lol:

Here's the list, Icelandic is one of the hardest languages to learn apparently:

Manudagur
Priojudagur
Midvikudagur
Fimmtudagur
Fostudagur
Laugardagur
Sunnudagur

But Js only abreviate date wheels to two letters (inc english) so it would be ( I think - not checked actual wheel yet):

MA. PR. MI. FI. FO. LA. SU.
