Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin pavōrem, singular accusative of pavor. It may be a semi-learned term in its current form, preserving the intervocalic 'v' unlike other non-Iberian Romance cognates (cf. however the inherited Old Spanish paor); descendants of Latin metus (e.g. Spanish miedo) were the primary words for "fear" on the Iberian peninsula. See also the dialectal pavura, with a change of suffix as with Italian paura.[1]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

pavor m ‎(plural pavores)
