*poka[edit]

Are you sure that this was the form of the word, and not masculine *pokō? The Old Norse cognate poki is a masculine n-stem, so is Old English pocca (not poca apparently), and Middle Dutch was both (but probably was masculine originally, and became feminine later). —CodeCat 00:08, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

I was temped to change it to n-stem, but it's definitely feminine in French, so maybe it's of a different root than the Old Norse. I also feel like if it was n-stem, we would see some examples of oblique case forms like pukun in French. --Victar (talk) 06:32, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
