Knofi etymology A diminutive form pertaining to Knoblauch. The -f- is due to its being derived from dialectal forms. One would expect a {{etym}} origin (cf. {{etym}} knoflōk), but there are also forms with -f- in some southern German dialects (themselves from an {{etym}} variant chlovalouh). Southern origin is more likely given the regional form Knofel, but Low German would have helped to spread the form in the north. pronunciation
