EtymologyEdit

Unknown, but thought to be from childish speech. However also found in regional Galician lipe m (tipcat game and wood), yet the Polish klipa (tipcat game and wood) – against Serbo-Croatian klȋs (tipcat game and wood) –, and Northern German Kibbel-Kabbel (tipcat game) with different consonant order, may prove that this is all ideophonic, relating to the sound produced when resonating wood is hit.
