Abstract

In this work the etymology of the word 'guimpa', or 'glimpa', (obsolete in Italian, but still present in dialects of Southern Italy with the meaning of "soggolo") is traced back to Anglo-Saxon 'wimpel'. It was possibly brought to Southern Italy by the Normans, who were already well acquainted with the Anglo-Saxon culture, much earlier than the Norman Conquest of 1066.
