Türkische aussprache bʌmpkîn
Etymologie [ 'b&m(p)-k&n ] (noun.) 1570. From either Flemish boomken, "shrub, little tree", diminutive of boom, "tree" (compare German Baum, Proto-Indo-European *bheu-) or from Middle Dutch bommekijn, "little tree", diminutive of bomme, "tree , barrel". Both can be compared to German Baumke or Bäumchen , meaning the same as the other two (German -ke, -chen, Flemish -ken). Note that the English word boom is etymologically related to the aforementioned "Baum", "boom", and "bomme" in the sense of "large stem", or "big tree".
