What does "algod�n" mean in English?


The Spanish word "algodón" means "cotton" in English. As with the English word "cotton," the Spanish word "algodón" refers to plants from the genus Gossypium, the fluffy fiber that grows around the seed and the fabrics made from this fiber.

The word "algodón" also appears in a few phrases and compounds. "Algodón de azúcar" and "algodón dulce" both mean the same thing as cotton candy in the United States or candy floss in the United Kingdom. The phrases "lo criaron entre algodones" and "vivía entre algodones" refer to a person who is sheltered and pampered.

Both the English word "cotton" and the Spanish word "algodón" are derived from the Arabic word for cotton, "al-qu?n."
