SpanishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Catalan relotge (1362) (Modern Catalan rellotge), from the older orollotge, from Latin hōrologium, from Ancient Greek ὡρολόγιον (hōrológion).[1] The current form of the word may partly be a back-formation of relojes, plural of obsolete reloje, which better conforms with the Catalan source and would explain the final j, which is rare in Spanish.[2][3] Cognate with Old Portuguese relojo, Portuguese relógio, English horologe, French horloge, Italian orologio and Romanian orologiu.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /reˈlox/, [reˈlox]
  • IPA(key): /reˈloɡ/, [reˈloɣ̞]
