Forest, in my words

caolig : forest

The Fennas word for forest is caolig. Similar Irish word caol means lean, slight, narrow.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh words for forest are coedwig and fforest, the Irish words for forest are coill and foraois, the Breton word for forest is koad. I think that I can assume that the words fforest and foraois are not Celtic.
