Etymology of cup

Posted by Johannes on 24 May 2010

Origin of cup
Cup comes from the Latin cupa/cuppa (hollow, cup), which derives from the Greek cype (hollow, cup; κύπη).
From the same root:
English: cupel
French: coupe, cuve, cuvette
Italian: coppa, coppella
Spanish: copa, cuba, copela
German: Kupe
In modern Greek (Romeika, the language of Romei/Romans/Ρωμηοί).
Η λέξη cup (κύπελλο) προέρχεται από το Λατινικό cupa/cuppa (κοιλότητα, κύπελλο), το οποίο προέρχεται από το Ελληνικό κύπη (κοιλότητα, γούβα, κύπελλο).
