GermanEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German botech, boteche, Old High German botega, potacha (large barrel) (9th century). Primarily Upper German, likely loaned from a Late Latin variant of apotheca (storage room, wine cellar), in Middle Latin also "barrel, vessel, container", or from Latin butica, Late Latin buttis (barrel). The Old High German word was feminine, the masculine genus appears in Middle High German, although some Upper German dialects retain feminine gender (Bavarian bottig f.).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈbɔtɪç/

    Synonyms: Kübel, Pott, Topf, Schüssel, Wanne, Bütte, Zuber

Usage notesEdit

  • A Bottich was originally a wooden vessel, which specification is maintained by several contemporary dictionaries. However, this is archaic. The word is now commonly used also for vessels made of plastic or even ceramic or stone. Only with metal, the term Kessel is preferable.
