WelshEdit

PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Celtic *tro, related to Middle Breton tro and middle Cornish tro.[1] The ultimate origin is unclear; sometimes said to be from Ancient Greek Τροία (Troía, Troy), referring to the city's maze-like walls, but this could just be a similarity enforced by folk etymology.[2][3] It could instead be from corruptions of troed (foot),[4] Latin torqueo (I turn), or Latin tropus/Ancient Greek τρόπος (trópos, a turn). Also compare French troller (to stroll, drag, wander about).[5] More at Caerdroia.

NounEdit

tro m (plural troeon)

  1. bend, turn, curve
  2. twist, kink
  3. turn, go
    fy nhro, dy dromy turn, your turn
  4. lap (of a race)
  5. walk (as recreation or exercise)
    mynd am droto go for a walk
