This is likely influenced by the Spanish word domingo. The Malay word is minggu, from the Portuguese domingo.

The word linggo can mean ‘Sunday’ or ‘week.’
(To compare, the Spanish word for ‘week’ is semana.)



ngayong Linggo
this Sunday

katapusan ng linggo
end of the week

mga huling araw ng linggo
last days of the week

There is no direct equivalent for the English word ‘weekend’ in Tagalog. The phrase katapusan ng linggo cannot be substituted for the English word ‘weekend.’ You have to specify which day you’re referring to.

Magkita tayo sa Sabado.
Let’s meet on Saturday.

Nakita kita noong nakaraang Linggo.
I saw you last Sunday.
