Request article


How about a page entitled 'Caput Succedaneum'? This is THE most common birth trauma (i think), even more common that cephalohaematomas, though very minor. I'd start the page but I'm not too sure how to write articles and wouldn't know how to link it under birth trauma. Squiggle 10:20, 14 August 2007 (UTC)Reply

Belated. Note capitalization and spelling, apparently Squiggle's 2007 request missed this Jan 29, 2006 article caput succedaneum. although cephalohaematoma did come much earlier in Nov 27, 2004.

Kaput, Kabuto


The Latin caput is of course descended from the Indo-European Kaput, which may be a distant relative of the Japanese Kabuto, "helmet." Das Baz, aka Erudil 17:48, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Latin Grammar


I believe the page should remain stand-alone. There should be more to say on this topic in due course. I note that the article Caput lists "Caput Baronium" with reference to Scottish feudalism. I believe the mediaeval Latin word "Baronia" (nom.) to be feminine, thus the genitive is "Baroniae", not "Baronium". Is the Scottish reference incorrect?

capot-kaputt-caput Cognation

The German word kaputt ("destroyed"), from which derives the English colloquialism 'kaput' or 'caput' (meaning done, or finished) is not related to this word. The origin of the German word, and consequently the English words is borrowing from the French: être capot, lit.'to be bonnet' or fig. 'to be defeated'.

The French word capot comes from the Old French capote, which in turn is derived from the Latin Caput.
