Usage notes[edit]

  • The two forms penna and pinna coexist in classical Latin, with the pe- spelling reflecting the phonetic evolution of the short Latin i.[1]
  • Some say the two forms penna and pinna were originally two different nouns, the former from old pesna, petna (wing) from Proto-Indo-European *peth₂- ‎(to fly), the latter for pitna (a sharp point, cf. Spanish peña and Portuguese penha).
