きんか【金瓜】

 Kansai (Wakayama)

kinka

Definition

Noun

  1. Any pumpkin or squash of the genus Cucurbita, especially of the species Cucurbita moschata (which includes the Neck Pumpkin and the Butternut Squash, among others).

Etymology

Cognate to the Wakayama きんか kinka; Okinawan ちんくゎ chinkwa; and the obsolete Japanese term きんか【金瓜】 kinka "pumpkin; gourd". Ultimately from Chinese 【金瓜】 "pumpkin" (cf. Mandarin jīn guā; Cantonese gam1 gwaa1; Min Nan kim-koe). Literal compound of 【金】 "gold" and 【瓜】 "gourd". Attested in the Okinawan language dictionary (沖縄語典, 1896), by Masayo Nakamoto, under the spelling ちんくわ chinkuwa.
