Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from Slavic *skutъ, or from Vulgar Latin *scuticum, from Latin scutica (a leather lash, whip), probably confused with derivatives of cutis (leather) (compare cutica). Therefore, the meaning could have changed from a leather belt to that of fabric or cloth in general. Cognate to Aromanian scutic.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

scutec n (plural scutece)

  1. nappy, diaper (an absorbent garment worn by a baby, or by someone who is incontinent.)
