Welsh[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Welsh pysgawd, from Proto-Brythonic *pɨskọd, borrowed from Latin piscātus, past participle of piscor (to fish), from piscis (fish). Originally a plural counterpart to pysg, from Proto-Brythonic *pɨsk (compare Cornish pysk, Breton pesk), which has however been displaced by the derived singulative pysgodyn.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpəsɡɔd/, [ˈpʰəskɔd]
