WelshEdit

EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Latin aureus (golden, adjective). The vowel au (/aɨ̯/) must have undergone internal i-affection, showing that this word is derived from the adjective aureus, not the noun aurum, which gave the now archaic synonym awr (not to be confused with awr (hour) from hōra).

NounEdit

aur m (uncountable)

  1. gold
