The Word of the Day in Irish

Word: broim (BRIM, BRIME)

Meaning: broim = fart


History: Old Irish “broimm”, which is the verbal noun (farting) of the verb “braigit” (farts), comes from a reconstructed Common Celtic verbal noun *bragsmen-, which also yields Welsh and Breton “bram”. This derives from the Indo-European root *bhreg- (to break).

Scottish Gaelic: braim
