Sicilian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Possibly from Vulgar Latin *trabaclāre < Latin trabaculare, or alternatively ultimately from Vulgar Latin *tripaliāre, present active infinitive of *tripaliō from tripalium, or derived regressively from travagghiu. Compare Spanish trabajar, Italian travagliare, which was a French loan word (meaning the Sicilian may ultimately be a borrowing as well, likely through Old Borrowing from Norman/Old Northern French travaler, traveler; compare French travailler).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /tra.vaɡˈɡja.ɾi/
  • Hyphenation: tra‧vag‧ghià‧ri

Verb[edit]

travagghiari
