Etymology[edit]

From Old Catalan relotge (1362) (Modern Catalan rellotge), from the older orollotge, from Latin hōrologium, from Ancient Greek ὡρολόγιον (hōrologion).[1] The current form of the word may partly be a back-formation of relojes, plural of obsolete reloje, which better conforms with the Catalan source and would explain the final "j", which is rare in Spanish.[2]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /reˈlox/, /reˈloɣ/, /reˈlo/

Noun[edit]

reloj m (plural relojes)

  1. clock
  2. watch, wristwatch
