Etymology[edit]

Back-formation from gwneuthur, from Middle Welsh gwneuthur, altered from *gwreithur with -n- from gwnio(to sew), from Proto-Celtic *wrego- (compare Cornish gwra(he does, makes), Breton gra(he does, makes), Old Irish fairged(they made)), from Proto-Indo-European *werǵ- (compare English work). Middle Welsh preserved the -r- in the preterite: gwreith(I did, made), goruc(he did, made).
