Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /kafə/, [ˈkʰɑfə]

Noun[edit]

kaffe c (singular definite kaffen, plural indefinite kaffer)

  1. coffee

Inflection[edit]


Livonian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Latvian kafija seems unlikely as a mediator (unless the addition of -ija (as popularized by Juris Alunāns) is a more recent development, Karulis doesn't list kafija) thus possibly directly from German Kaffee.

Noun[edit]

kaffe

  1. coffee
    Siedā kaffezt vel tīeb – I'm still making that coffee

Declension[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

Singular partitive with -zt (as in types 57 – kuțā and 58 – nētša) can be encountered, Viitso, however, indicates inflection type 56 – lilla.
