Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin Anglus, in turn borrowed from a Germanic source (compare Old English Ængle/Engle(Angle)). Probably derived from the toponym Angle, related to *anguz "narrow, tight; tapering, angular", either indicating the "narrow" water (i.e. the Schlei estuary), or the "angular" shape of the peninsula.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Angle ‎(plural Angles)
