Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Related to fuego, and possibly ultimately from a Vulgar Latin *focone, from focus, perhaps through Catalan fogó or through a Mozarabic intermediary, as it was attested relatively late and preserved the initial -f- as opposed to -h- (compare hogar, hoguera, hogaza, etc.)[1].

Noun[edit]

  1. fireplace
  2. stove, range
  3. (nautical) galley, cuddy, caboose
