Today’s the day – names of days of the week in Bengali

Days of the week in Bengali / Bangla

Days of the week, like much of my basic Bengali vocabulary, could do with a bit a bit of practice when it comes to their exact spellings.

See, I’ve been spending quite a bit of times recently working at my Quizlet Bengali flashcards and it’s become fairly apparent that while I know, for instance, that ‘tiger’ is ‘বাঘ’ I still um and ah as to whether the word begins with a ব or a ভ and if it should end with গ or ঘ.

So in that spirit I’ll be revising the following days of the week, trying to remember how the conjuncts are formed and when ক/খ, প/ফ, চ/ছ etc are required.

সোমবার (sombar) – Monday

মঙ্গলবার (mongolbar) Tuesday

বুধবার (budhbar) – Wednesday

বৃহস্পতিবার (brihospotibar) – Thursday

সুক্রবার (sukrobar) – Friday

শনিবার (sonibar) – Saturday

রবিবার (robibar) – Sunday

দিন (din) – Day

সপ্তাহ (soptaho) – Week

মাস (mas) – Month

বছর (bochor) – Year

আজ (aj) – Today

আগামিকাল (agamikal) – Tomorrow

গতকাল (gotokal) – Yesterday

And there’s a flashcard set of these terms on Quizlet.
