Asturian mundu, Portuguese mundo, Galician mundo, Catalan món, French monde, Italian mondo, Sardinian mundhu
munθ-?, meaning unknown
On the basis of Auto de Reyes Magos (12th cent.), it is believed that mundo was pronounced /mon.do/ for some time: Que es senior de todo el mundo / asi cumo el cilo es redondo. This conservative pronunciation was likely due to reinforcement from Ecclesiastical Latin and, perhaps, from Gallo-Romance languages like French, Catalan, which meant that for several centuries there were two pronunciations of mundo side-by-side.
