Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin talpa (mole), with a change in gender. The /l/ of this word appears to have vocalized to [u̯] in early Tuscan, via the stage [ɫ],[1] with the resulting [au̯] regularly turning to [ɔ], as also in Latin aurum (gold) > Italian òro. Doublet of talpa.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈtɔ.po/
  • (file)
  • Rhymes: -ɔpo
  • Hyphenation: tò‧po

Noun[edit]

topo m (plural topi, feminine topa) diminutive topolino

  1. mouse, rat, ratton
    Synonym: sorcio
  2. (by extension) thief; person acting suspiciously or furtively

Usage notes[edit]

Certain authorities including Umberto Eco, semiotician and author, insist that topo does not differentiate between “mouse” and “rat”:

Aiuto, un topo!Help, a mouse/rat!

Here topo is ambiguous — it refers to the impression somebody has when a mouse or rat comes along, that is when somebody panics because of seeing the animal.
