cup is kaipu

kaipu = cup (noun) (some things Google found for "kaipu": an uncommon term; Kaipu is an Israeli line of natural cosmetics; an unusual last name that can be from India; street name in Ewa Beach, Hawaii; a rare first name; Nee Kaipu Chupulo is a song in Telugu film (Tollywood) titled Vijetha; Hangzhou Kaipu Electronic Technique Co., Ltd of China; name of a place in Papua New Guinea)

Word derivation for "cup" :
Basque = katilu (cup, bowl), Finnish = kuppi
Miresua = kaipu

This is new word, one that I was somewhat surprised I didn't have defined. It appears later on in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
