Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish, from Latin fundus, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bʰudʰmḗn. The preservation of the initial older 'f' in this word may be to distinguish it from the doublet hondo, which became an adjective and continued its phonetic evolution as expected. Also the doublet of fundo, a later borrowing.

fondo m (plural fondos)

  1. bottom

    al fondo
    at the back
  3. fund, funding
  4. opposite side or extreme (of a house, store, room, corridor, street, field, tubing, piping, etc.), respect to the talker, entrance or beginning.
