Definitions and meaning of mop

mop

Etymology

From Middle English mappe (also as mappel), perhaps borrowed from Walloon mappe (napkin), from Latin mappa (napkin, cloth). Believed to be from a Semitic source, variously claimed as Phoenician or Punic (the latter by Quintilian). Compare Modern Hebrew מפה(mapá, a map; a cloth) (shortened from מנָפָה(manpah, fluttering banner, streaming cloth)). More at map.

Etymology 1

The now-obsolete sense brick, attested from the 17th century, appears to be the oldest, with the sense cookie following in the 18th century. The exact relationship between the various later senses is unclear. The ultimate origin is unclear, but possibly corrupted from mok (mug, cup).

mop m (plural moppen, diminutive mopje n)

  1. a joke, jest
  2. a tune, melody
  3. a type of cookie
  4. (endearing, often in the diminutive) a woman or girl
  5. (obsolete) a brick
Usage notes
  • The use as an affectionate term of address is often as a diminutive, and specifically in the non-standard form moppie. The standard diminutive mopje is never used for this sense.
