Noun[edit]

patte

  1. partitive plural of patt

French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French, from Old French pade, pate (paw, foot of an animal), from Vulgar Latin *patta (paw, foot), borrowed from Frankish *patta (paw, sole of the foot), from Proto-Germanic *pat-, *paþa- (to walk, tread, go, step), of uncertain origin and relation. Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *(s)pent-, *(s)pat- (path; to walk), a variant of Proto-Indo-European *pent-, *pat- (path; to go). Cognate with Dutch poot (paw), Low German pedden (to step, tread). Related to English pad, path.
