Etymology[edit]

1780, ultimately from Tundra Nenets парка, via Aleut parka and Russian па́рка ‎(párka).[1][2][3] Perhaps from Proto-Uralic; see dialectal Finnish parka ‎(rag, swaddling clothes), which may be cognate from Proto-Uralic, or early borrowing from another Uralic language.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

parka ‎(plural parkas)

  1. A long jacket with a hood which protects the wearer against rain and wind.
    • 2002 January 3, James Meek, London Review of Books:

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Uncertain. The original sense, retained in dialects, is "a rag, swaddling clothes" and it is possible that the word is an old cognate of the international parka meaning "jacket", as a loan from Tundra Nenets or, less likely, even by common inheritance from Proto-Uralic.[1]
