ABSTRACT
The article discusses the etymology and origin of the Spanish word "flamenco." It explores existing etymologies for the word which propose either an Arabic-Hispanic origin or a derivation upon Spanish terms denoting Flemish people or Flanders. The author argues that the word originated with the Romani language of the Gypsies.
