- Pougetoux is a diminutive of:
- Pouget, which is a diminutive (in -et) of:
- Occitan puech / pueg / puog / poujhë "hill", which comes from:
- Latin podium "balcony", which comes from:
- Greek πόδιον "foot of a vase", a diminutive (in -ion) of:
- Greek πούς "foot", which comes from:
- Proto-Indo-European *pod-s "foot"
In the course of this long history, no less than three different diminutive suffixes have been accreted on to the original root (although I'm not quite sure about the identity of that -oux.) I wonder whether that generalizes; do words meaning "hill" tend to accrete more and more diminutive suffixes as they develop over time?
