Etymology[edit]

From Middle Low German kajüte, which is probably borrowed from Middle Dutch kayhute, though the latter is attested somewhat later. Further origin unsettled; traditionally held to be of Old French origin, according to Watkins, possibly a mix of cabane + hutte. Other possibilities include cave (hollow) or Dutch kooi (cage), a doublet of it. Compare modern Dutch kajuit.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /kaˈjyːtə/
  • (file)
