Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier *kaps, form of kap, originally meaning hunt animal. For sense development compare Proto-Germanic *huntōną (to hunt, capture), from Proto-Indo-European *kend- (to catch, seize). The other alternative suggests it derives from Latin causa, but the unexplained insertion of f makes it improbable.
