Bosquejo

» by in: Nouns

This is an odd word. It means an outline and is used very much like we would use the word in English. It would be a rough draft to a drawing or it could be a word list that you would use as a prompt while giving a speech or it could be the first draft of a play.

Outline. Plain and simple. The verb is bosquejar and means to outline.

I am curious as to where the word comes from. It does not look (or sound) Latin or Greek. Anyone else know?

    I look for it in the RAE (Real Academia Española) I will quote it here:

    “bosquejo.

    (De bosque).

    1. m. Traza primera y no definitiva de una obra pictórica, y en general de cualquier producción del ingenio.

    2. m. Idea vaga de algo.

    en ~.

    1. loc. adj. No perfeccionado, no concluido.”

    It say it comes (de bosque) from ‘forest’ looking then in ‘bosque’ it say it comes from unknow origin, so I’m a little confused, sorry.
