Etymology

edit

Inherited from Old Galician-Portuguese cabrito (13th century, Cantigas de Santa Maria). By surface analysis, cabra +‎ -ito. May have originally corresponded to a Vulgar Latin or Late Latin caprītus (attested in Salic Law), from *caprio (*caprīre), from Latin caper (which would have normally yielded *cabrido), but was influenced by the Portuguese diminutive suffix -ito (from Late Latin -ittus). Compare Spanish cabrito, Aragonese crabido, crabito, crapito, Catalan and Occitan cabrit, dialectal French chevri.

Etymology

Inherited from Old Spanish cabrito. Analyzable as cabra (goat) +‎ -ito; may have originally corresponded to a Vulgar Latin or Late Latin caprītus (attested in Salic Law), as the perfect passive participle of a verb *caprīre (give birth (of goats)), from Latin caper (which would have normally yielded *cabrido), but was influenced by the Spanish diminutive suffix -ito (from Late Latin -ittus). Compare Portuguese cabrito, Aragonese crabido, crabito, crapito, Catalan cabrit, Occitan cabrit, dialectal French chevri.[1]
