Shavuot = weeks
Shavua = week
-ot =plural
root is shab/shoob = same root for return, repent, Sabbath, week
taking it letter by letter it means ‘press, into house or family, nailed/fastened/hooked/connected, to see, know, experience’
Pentacost means count 50 days. But that has nothing to do with the real meaning of this.  It is a Greek word that came about later.  It is not about how many days, but about counting 7 weeks after the resurrection or after they left Egypt as the case may be.
