Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈklabo/, [ˈklaβo]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Old Spanish clavo, from Latin clāvus, from Proto-Italic *klāwos, from Proto-Indo-European *kleh₂u-. First attested in the 12th century. The word underwent a delayed phonetic evolution (as evidenced by the atypical conservation of the consonant cluster -cl-, which normally becomes -ll- in inherited Spanish), probably due to the pronunciation used by the upper classes, as with the case of claro (cf. other irregular cases such as flor, plato). Despite this, it is difficult to view the word as a learned or semi-learned borrowing[1]. Compare Portuguese cravo.
