EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Latin Anglus, in turn borrowed from a Germanic source (compare Old English Ængle/Engle (Angle)). Probably derived from the toponym Angle, related to *anguz "narrow, tight; tapering, angular", either indicating the "narrow" water (i.e. the Schlei estuary), or the "angular" shape of the peninsula.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

Angle (plural Angles)

  1. A member of a Germanic tribe first mentioned by Tacitus, one of several which invaded Britain and merged to become the Anglo-Saxons.
