comment “Sunday this week” or “Sunday next week”
The person asking the question doesn't seem to realize that Sunday is the first day of the European calendar and that Japan simply adopted the European calendar using the names of the days from their old astrological calendar. So I added that information. In fact nkjt gave the same answer in the comments to the other answer. If there's any other question waiting to be answered here I don't see it.

comment “Sunday this week” or “Sunday next week”
I thought the question was "Why was Sunday made the beginning of the week when Japan adopted the Gregorian calendar?" Sorry.

Okay, I see. The 形 means something like it follows all the Euclidean rules. Thank you!

comment What is the difference between 日曜日【にちようび】and 日曜【にちよう】?
This is incorrect. They have the same meaning, and the final 日 was added in the Meiji period to make spoken language easier. You may hear these examples simply because you don't say 日曜 out loud as much.

comment When grandmas tell their kids お天道様がみてるよ, how do the kids know who お天道様 is?
So it is a common word, despite what silvermaple said? Is there a book that uses it?

comment Pluralization in Japanese: usage of -たち and -ら
ども is actually used sarcastically these days and is extremely rude, like 貴様。
