RomanizationEdit

katto

  1. Rōmaji transcription of カット

Old SaxonEdit

EtymologyEdit

Common to West and North Germanic: cognate with Old English catt, Old Norse kǫttr (Swedish katt), Old High German kazzo. The word existed in the Germanic languages in a female gender also, represented in Old Saxon by katta. The word appears to be related to Late Latin cattus as well as to similar words in the Slavic and Celtic languages, but the ultimate source is uncertain.
