Can someone confirm the etymology of the Spanish word bodegón? I know that it is an augmentative of bodega, which I could trace back to the 11th century. I do not know if it is from Old Spanish as well or if it is newer, from Modern or Standard Spanish; I wish to make this distinction.

1 Answer 1


It is indeed an augmentative from bodega, as shown in the Diccionario de la Lengua Española:


Del aum. de bodega.

1. m. taberna.
