Alternative forms[edit]

  • (obsolete form) zupe

Etymology[edit]

A borrowing from German Suppe, itself partly via French soupe, partly via Middle Low German sope, from Proto-Germanic *supô (compare also sūpen “to drink; to eat with a spoon,” German saufen “to drink; to booze”), ultimately from the same Proto-Indo-European stem (*seu-, *sū- “juice; moisture”) as the verb sūkt (to suck). This word was borrowed before the 17th century; it is first mentioned in writing in the 18th century (as zupe), but only in the 19th century did it become frequent. The modern form zupa also became dominant in the 19th century.[1]
