EtymologyEdit

Related to fuego, and possibly ultimately from a Vulgar Latin *focone, from focus, perhaps through Catalan fogó or through a Mozarabic intermediary, as it was attested relatively late and preserved the initial -f- as opposed to -h- (compare hogar, hoguera, hogaza, etc.)[1].

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /foˈɡon/, [foˈɣõn]
  • Hyphenation: fo‧gón
