Focal an Lae #68
The Word of the Day in Irish

Word: bord (BOHRD)

Meaning: bord = board; table; deck


History: Old/Middle Irish “bord” was borrowed from Old English “bord” and reinforced by the existence of the same word in Old Norse. The ultimate source may be an Indo-European word *bhrdho- (board) from the root *bheredh- (to cut).

Scottish Gaelic: bòrd
