Etymology 1[edit]

< Swedish kappe ‎(old measure of volume equal to 4.58 liters). Cognates include Estonian kapp, German Kapp.

Noun[edit]

kappa

  1. An old unit of measure for volume of dry things, still used for potatoes in market squares. A modern kappa is equal to 5 liters (iso kappa), or 2 liters (pikku kappa), but during the period of autonomy under Russia it was 1/30 of tynnyri ‎(barrel) or 5.4961 liters, and before that under the Swedish rule it was 1/32 of tynnyri or 4.58 liters. A further complication is that Swedish and Russian barrels were not of equal size.

Etymology 2[edit]

From Swedish kappa, from Medieval Latin cappa.

  1. pelmet
