Galician[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unknown. Perhaps derived from Old French eschoppe (booth, stall) or from Middle English schoppe,[1] from Proto-Germanic *skup- (shed, stall). Probably also related to Spanish chopa (pilot's cabin aboard a boat) and to Basque txopa (stern), themselves either from Latin puppis (stern) or borrowed from Galician-Portuguese.[2]

Cognate of Portuguese choupana, probably also related to the Spanish of the Canary isles chupenco (a poor house).[3]

Coromines supports a immediate basque origin of these word, but other scholars consider that Basque txopa derives from Spanish and no the other way around: cf. R. L. Trask.
