Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

This form derives from Old Spanish frio, from Latin frīgidus (cold) (by natural sound changes through a hypothetical intermediate early Ibero-Romance or proto-Spanish form *friyio), from frīgeō (to be cold), from frīgus (cold, coldness), from Proto-Indo-European *sriHgos-, *sriges-, *sriHges-. See also the variant Old Spanish form frido, which came instead from a Vulgar or Late Latin form fridus (attested in some Pompeian inscriptions), from frigdus, fricdus (attested in the Appendix Probi), syncopated form of frīgidus[1]. It is from this form that most Romance descendants arose (e.g. Catalan fred, French froid, Italian freddo). Compare also the borrowed doublet frígido.
