Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish falso, from Latin falsus. The preservation of the initial -f- and and -al- from the Latin are not due to borrowing, but because the word was originally used and maintained by mostly the upper or learned classes, often relating to a moral sense, and then likely dispersed gradually into more common speech by the clergy or other educated people[1].
