Since this question remained unanswered, I gave the solution. It
is a Hungarism: this word is developed in Hungarian from Slavonic
word form "gospoda" and it was re-borrowed by neighbouring Slavonic
dialects, such as Slovak and Rusyn (Carpathian Ukrainian) on north-
east region. And these Carpathian dialects mediated the word into
more central idiolects.
