Genedlaethol looks like a compound of some type - how does it parse?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ibisc

It comes from cenedl, which means 'nation' (and 'generation'). -ol is a common adjectival ending.

cenhedlaeth is another word for 'generation' which has also been used for 'nation' in the past.

Cenedl is also distantly related to English kin, Latin genus, and French genre.
