Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish fiebre, hiebre, probably a semi-learned descendant of Latin febris, febrem, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰegʷʰris, an extension of the root *dʰegʷʰ- (to burn, warm). This term was used primarily by doctors and educated people in the past, and did not undergo all the expected sound changes of an inherited term; compare the more popular term calentura[1].
