Galician[edit]

Debated. Documented as burgana in Medieval Latin local documents. Either from Vulgar Latin, or from a pre-Roman substrate of Iberia, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰrewh₁- (to boil).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

burga f (plural burgas)

  1. hot spring

Usage notes[edit]

Whilst toponomy shows that once this word was in use in most of Galicia, today it is mostly reduced to name the hot springs of the city of Ourense.
