Proto-SlavicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *kup-, from Proto-Indo-European *kup- (reconstructed as *kweh₁p- in Rix (LIV), but per Derksen the laryngeal is unnecessary). Cognate with Lithuanian kūpė́ti (to boil over), 1sg. kūpù, 3sg. kū̃pa, Latvian kupêt, kupôt (to seethe). Probably also cognate with Sanskrit कुप्यति (kúpyati, to be angry, to boil with emotion) and Latin cupiō (to desire). Vasmer and Chernykh also link Latvian kûpêt (to smoke, to steam) but per Derksen this belongs to a different Indo-European root *k(ʷ)h₂up-.
