EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Old Occitan batalha, or Old French bataille, from Late Latin battālia, variant of battuālia, from Latin battuō. If inherited, the Latin term would have resulted in a Spanish *bataja instead, and even in Old Spanish writing such as the Cantar de Mio Cid, it was treated as a neologism, while the normal term for fight or battle was lid.[1]

PronunciationEdit

  • (Castilian) IPA(key): /baˈtaʎa/, [baˈt̪aʎa]
  • (Latin America) IPA(key): /baˈtaɟ͡ʝa/, [baˈt̪aʝa]
  • Hyphenation: ba‧ta‧lla

NounEdit
