EtymologyEdit

Etymology 1Edit

Uncertain. The original sense, retained in dialects, is "a rag, swaddling clothes" and it is possible that the word is an old cognate of the international parka meaning "jacket", as a loan from Tundra Nenets or, less likely, even by common inheritance from Proto-Uralic.[1]
