Etymology 1Edit

From Old Spanish filo, from Latin fīlum. Doublet of hilo. Although both were inherited, it is not fully certain why the two diverged and why filo, preserving the initial -f- from Old Spanish, took on the sense of "edge", while hilo maintained that of "string, thread" (in line with the original Latin meaning).

NounEdit

filo m (plural filos)

  1. edge (of the blade of an instrument)
  2. edge (sharp terminating border)
  3. (colloquial, dated, Colombia, El Salvador) hunger
  4. (Cuba) fold
