Romanization[edit]

hondo

  1. Rōmaji transcription of ほんど

Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish fondo, from Latin fundus, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bʰudʰmḗn, with the Latin noun taking on an adjectival sense in Spanish. An alternative theory sees the Old Spanish fondo as a shortening of an earlier, pre-literary *perfondo, from the Latin adjective profundus instead, which matches with the sense of the word better[1]; however this is uncertain. The word profundo is a neologism later borrowed from Latin. Cf. also the Spanish noun fondo (bottom), which may have preserved the old initial 'f' to distinguish it from the adjective hondo, its doublet.
