The Romance Days of the Week: An Underlying Cohesiveness.
Holman, Robyn A.
Language Quarterly, v32 n1-2 p165-74 Sum-Fall 1994
Reexamines the work of earlier scholars on the circumstances accompanying the changes in the names of the days of the week. Syntactic changes as well as the Church's struggle to eradicate the names of the pagan divinities played a great role in effecting these changes. Dual designations, full forms, and condensed ones existed side by side in some regions. (18 references) (CK)
