EtymologyEdit

From older copaci (compare Aromanian cupaci, Megleno-Romanian cupaci, Istro-Romanian copaț (thicket, brushwood)), possibly borrowed from Albanian kopaç (treestump) or cognate to it as a Balkan substratum root. The current form was probably analogically formed as a singular from the earlier copaci, reinterpreted as a plural. Compare also Proto-Slavic *kopati, which may be the ultimate origin of both the Romanian and Albanian.
