cutlass 短剑

来自拉丁词culter, 刀,来自PIE*skel, 砍,劈,词源同cleave, scale. -ass, 大词后缀,见largess. 拼写受cut影响俗化。

cutlass: [16] Appropriate as the name sounds, cutlass has no etymological connection with cut. It comes from Old French cutelas, a derivative (denoting large size) of coutel ‘knife’. This in turn goes back to Latin cultellus, a diminutive of culter ‘knife, ploughshare’ (source of English coulter [OE] and cutler [14], whence cutlery [14]).
=> coulter, cutlery
cutlass (n.)
1590s, from Middle French coutelas (16c.), probably from Italian coltellaccio "large knife" (with augmentative suffix -accio), from coltello "knife," from Latin cultellus "small knife," diminutive of culter "knife, plowshare," from PIE *kel-tro-, from root *(s)kel- "to cut" (see scale (n.1)).
