Breton[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Related to South Wales gwadd and Cornish godh. The <z> in the spelling "goz" derives from older /ð/ which survives in Leon (as /z/ or /s/) whereas /ð/ has become silent in most other dialects. Scholars such as Steve Hewitt and Iwan Wmffre suggest that old /ð/ be spelt as a <z> with some diacritic mark (e.g. <ż>) to allow dialects differentiate between the outcomes of older /ð/ and /z/. The spelling "goz" wrongly suggests that the Cornouaille/Trégor pronunciation is [go:s] rather than [go:] (from older [go:ð]).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈɡoː(s)/ (supradialectal)
  • IPA(key): [ˈɡoː] (Cornouaille/Trégor)
