Pit has a myriad of definitions in the dictionary, from a hole in the ground to the stone of a fruit. It can be either a noun or a verb - or in slang, an adjective ("my job is the pits"). My dictionary gives only the Old English basis for the noun and a borrowing from Dutch for the verb. A curious chameleon of a word!
