En ingles, existen muchas palabras para designar distintos tipos de barcos. ¿Existe en español un cognado de "ship"?

1 Answer 1


Tel vez "esquife", although it refers to a very specific kind of ship:

Del cat. esquif, este del it. ant. schifo, y este del longobardo *skif; cf. a. al. ant. skif, ingl. ship.

Barco pequeño que se lleva en el navío para saltar a tierra y para otros usos.

Also here:

French esquif, Italian schifo are Germanic loan-words.

  • It comes from skiff. Which is a boat not a ship.
