Is there another word for generic soup? I know what cawl is and it is a very good soup indeed but it's very specific.

Cawl on its own is a broth but it is also used as the generic word for all types of soup.

eg cawl cennin a thatws = leek and potato soup

cawl tomato = tomato soup

etc

potes is another word sometimes used for soup, but cawl seems to be more common.

Spanish tip: "caldo".

Any relation to English "cauldron?"

No; it's related instead to "kale, cauli(flower), cole(slaw), col(lard greens)" -- all are ultimately loanwords from Latin caulis (originally "stem, stalk", later used to refer to cabbage).

    Marvelous to see how latin evolved..! The spanish word caldo , meaning a very light broth.
