Road, in my words

borth : road

The Fennas word for road is borth. Borth is a last name. Borth means portal in Welsh. Borth is the name of small towns in Wales, Germany and Wisconsin.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for road is ffordd (note that DD in Welsh has the sound of voiced TH as in this or there); the Irish word for road is bóthar; and the Breton word for road is bord.
