Definitions and meaning of ape

ape

Pronunciation

  • enPR: āp, IPA(key): /eɪp/
  • Rhymes: -eɪp

Etymology 1

From Middle English ape, from Old English apa (ape, monkey), from Proto-Germanic *apô (monkey, ape), possibly derived from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ep- (water), compare Proto-Celtic *abū (river), if the word originally referred to a "water sprite". Traditionally assumed to be an ancient loanword instead, ultimately probably from an unidentified non-Indo-European language of regions in Africa or Asia where monkeys are native. Cognate with Scots aip (ape), West Frisian aap (ape), Dutch aap (monkey, ape), Low German Ape (ape), German Affe (monkey, ape), Swedish apa (monkey, ape), Icelandic api (ape).
