Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The etymology is unknown. Lewis and Short attribute this to the same root as Latin scalpō. However it is often ascribed to Proto-Indo-European *telh₂- (ground). Maybe transferred from a Germanic word for “paw” owing to the animal’s massive forelimbs, see Romanian talpă (sole). One Californian and Nevadan species has later been named broad-footed, Scapanus latimanus, which would translate to Hungarian as talpas.
