Zupa

Alternative formsEdit

  • (obsolete form) zupe

EtymologyEdit

A borrowing from German Suppe, itself a borrowing from French soupe, itself, in turn, a borrowing from Middle Low German (cf., e.g., sūpen “to drink; to eat with a spoon,” German saufen “to drink; to booze”), ultimately from the same Proto-Indo-European stem (*seu-, *sū- “juice; moisture”) as the verb sūkt (to suck). This word was borrowed before the 17th century; it is first mentioned in writing in the 18th century (as zupe), but only in the 19th century did it become frequent. The modern form zupa also became dominant in the 19th century.[1]
