Let K be a knot in a rational homology sphere M. In this paper we correlate the Alexander polynomial of K with a g-word cyclic presentation for the fundamental group of the strongly-cyclic covering of M branched over K. We also give a formula for the order of the first homology group of the strongly-cyclic branched covering.
