Etymology[edit]

From Ukrainian ковбаса́ (kovbasá, sausage, see there for more), a very early Slavic borrowing with no clear antecedent.

The Slavic variants (including Polish kiełbasa, whence kielbasa) point to several reconstructed forms from Proto-Slavic *kъlbasa, *klobasa, *kobasa. It is considered most likely to be borrowed from Proto-Turkic *kül +‎ *bastï, literally ash pressed; compare Turkish külbastı (roasted meat), basmak (to press).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

kubasa (countable and uncountable, plural kubasas)

  1. (Canada) A smoked pork sausage with garlic, originating in Eastern Europe.
    Synonyms: garlic ring, garlic sausage, kielbasa
