It is well known that Ottoman Turkish literature from its very beginning to the early part of this century was strongly influenced by the classical Persian literature. Knowledge of the Persian language and letters was a sine qua non of Ottoman education. No wonder that the dictionaries of Ottoman abound in poetic, but also prosaic, Persian loanwords. The prosaic ones include a large amount of househould terminology, which markedly differs from the high-level poetic terms by its stronger assimilation and integration in the Turkish language. These terms for domestic objects and concepts must have been borrowed at an early stage, however difficult it may be to state when. It is also difficult to assess the role which was played by erudite snobbery in their borrowing, although we may assume that it was not large. Less attention has been paid to the Persian loanwords which are not representedin the standard language, but are being used in the dialects of Anatolia. With some of these our present study intends to deal. All materials presented here have been extracted from the Soz derleme dergisi (DD, see Works cited in abbrevation, at end of article) which only lists those words that can be regarded as completely assimilated. In this, our study follows a number of earlier studies (AndreasTietze: 'Griechische Lehnworter im anatolischen Tiirkisch', Oriens, vol. 8, I955, pp. 204-257; 'Slavische Lehnworterin der tiirkischenVolkssprache',
Oriens, vol. Io, 1957, pp. 1-47; 'Direkte arabische Entlehnungen im anatolischen Tiirkisch', Melanges Jean Deny, Ankara, I958, pp. 255-333;

'Einige weitere griechische Lehnwirter im anatolischen Tiirkisch',

Nemeth armagans, Ankara, I962, pp. 373-388).

The material presented in this article is arranged in the alphabetical order of the etyma. Each entry begins with the ModernPersian etymon, often followed by remarks about is formation, dialectical variants, and
the distribution in geographically significant areas; a colon then leads


Andreas Tietze

over to the Anatolian Turkishvariants (Designation of language has been omitted both for the etymon and for the borrowings in the Turkish dialects). If a variant of the term is also representedin Standard Ottoman or Standard Azerbaijani,this is indicated separately. A unified system of transliteration has been used in general, but for the Turkish words the spelling of the sources has been retained. In this spelling there is no systematic distinction between d and e, k and q, h and x, and between long and short vowels. The word list is followed by an Index Rerum in which the material is presented in view of the meanings of the loanwordsin dialectal Turkish. Here the types are arrangednot so much according to logical definition, but rather in groups representing various practical fields of human activity. In spite of the incompleteness of our material, it is interesting to see the relative importance of the broad area of basic economic activities (agriculture, gardening, irrigation, animal husbandry) on the one hand and that of various domestic subjects (cooking, clothing, family life) on the other hand. The terms representing a higher level of social life and culture are mostly suspect of having been introduced through an earlier layer of the standard language. Indices of all the words treated and a table for bibliographicalreference will be found at the end of the article.


Although our sources for the Turkish borrowings do not indicate vowel length, we can safely assume that in the dialectal material all long vowels have become short. This assumption is corroboratedby the fact that Persian a and i are often representedin our material as e and i, thus by vowels which cannot be lengthened. Persian e and o, which today have become i and u, ordinarily appear as e and o or o, a fact which establishes the early date of these borrowings.The vowel in Persian xwa occursin our material as a, o, and u, but the examples are too few to be significant. As in the borrowings in Standard Ottoman the short vowels are ordinarily put into the palatal category, but also words containing a or i often appear in this category throughout as can be seen from the following examples:
a: 6. *afzdr > evcer(siz); I3. dvang > hevenk; I6. dzana > ecene; 32. caryak > erik; 35. cauganc > oggen; 40. ddn > den; 41. ddna > dene; > giimen; 59. harifdna > herfene; 69. kdbin > kebin; 76. 53. gumn kaskdv > keskef; Io2. sagbdn > segmen; II4. Sana > sene; 126. ydrdn > yeren.

Persian Loanwords

in Anatolian



u: 54. guina > gdne;58. gfzga > ciice; 78 k4ca > kiiFe;I30. zalf > zeli;
I3I. zambwrak > zenbildek.

In these examples we see the effect of the Turkish rule of vowel harmony. Both palatal and labial harmony were effective in the change duirbzn > diilbiin(46.). An example in which both alternatives of palatal harmonization were realized is Persian araqcin (Io.) which appears as arakgtn and as erehcinas well as in several transitional variants. The Persian diphthong au (today pronounced ou, ow) is represented by o in our material: 35. caugan > fogen; 71. kausgar > kosker. A frequent feature, also of Standard Ottoman, is the labialization of the vowel in the neighborhood of a labial consonant. Examples of progressive labialization: 2. durez > havruz; 86. mzrdu > imrul; I27. ydva > yavu; and possibly 31. carpaddr> alpatur. Examples of regressive labialization: 26. cambar> omber; o09. sipdra > supara; II2. adbds >
foba; II6. tdbxdna > tovhana; II7. tabxxdna >tokhana; I35. zihgir >

ziifkiir. Also delabialization of a rounded after a non-roundedvowel is found in Standard Ottoman. In our material there are these examples: 7.
dxur > axsr; I30. zali > zeli. This phenomenon also occurs after a

labial consonant: 4. afsiin > avssn. Delabialization even occurs in first

syllables: 98. pustavdn > pestivan; iII. sumtirds > santzra.

Since Turkish does not have liquids or nasals in initial position, a prothetic vowel may be used to avoid this feature in borrowed words. Our material includes several examples for this: 80. ldfzan > yslabazan;
89. ndtad > anasta; 99. rang > ireng; 0oo. rasta > arasta; IOI. rzsta >

eriste. The opposite development, perhaps caused by hypercorrection, is found in o1. araqc'n > ra?qzn. Epenthetic vowels which serve to break up intrasyllabic consonant clusters are common in Standard Ottoman (They are also common in some Persian dialects, notably in the Khorasan). There are also some instances in our material: 34. catr > fetir; 70. kaf > kevis. There are several instances for the droppingof a middle vowel in words of three or more syllables: 8. dlica > alfa; 47. firomdnda >fermana; 57. yalladdn >kaldan; 59. harffdna > harfene; 85. me-sna > mesne;
I07. sdyavdn > sayvan; o09. szpara > sspra. This seems to be a typical

phenomenon, although there are two cases which seem to present the opposite development (39. dahra > tahara, and 80. ldfzan > yzlabazan and Standard Ottoman lafazan). There is one unquestionable case of dropping of a final vowel: 50. gazang4 > gezen. There are three cases of aspiration of an initial vowel: 2. abrez >


Andreas Tietze

havrtz; 13. dvang > hevenk; IOI. ri?ta > eriste > heriste. There is also one case in which the initial aspiration was dropped: 59. harifdna >

Consonants: The only Persian phoneme which is normally not represented in Turkish is z. In our material it only occurs in one type and there is representedby g: I6. daana > acene. The phoneme y in Turkish cannot occur initially. In our material Persian initial y appears only once; in the loanword it is replaced by q:
57. yalladdn > kaladan.

Initial g in Turkish only occurs before front vowels; before back vowels it is desonorizedto q: 53. gumdn > kuman. Desonorization also normally takes place in Turkish when a voiced consonant appears in syllable-final (word-final) position or as a segmental feature in consonant clusters. In our material the following
cases occur: Word-final b > p: 38. cob > 9op. Word-final v >f: 76. kaskdv > keskef; II5. Sev > sef. Word-final d > t: 55. gunda > kiint. Syllable-final g or y > k or q: 37. cirdypd > 9zrakpa; 56. gung > kiink; 6I. xarsang > hersek; 83. mary > merk; 99. rang > irenk; I29. zdaya > zak9a; I32. zang > zenk. g > k after unvoiced consonant: 71. kafsgar > kosker; I35. zihgir >

*zihkir > zikir. Word-final g > c: 17. bag > pap; III. sumtirds > sunturaf. Apart from these regular features, desonorization also takes place typically in the initial consonant:
Initial b > p: 17. bag > pa; 23. b6y > poy. Initial d > t: 39. dahra > tahra; 41. ddna > tene. Initial z > s: I29. zsayca > sakFa; I3I. zambiirak > sempirek. Initial g > k: 48. ganduma > kendime; 52. girda > kirde; 55. gunda > kiinde; 56. gung > kiink.

Other cases of desonorization:

b > p: v >f: d > t: g > k: y >x: rauyan > 69. kdbin > kepin; I3I. zambarak > sempirek. 5. iftava > aftafa; I07. sayavan > sayfan. 3I. cdrpdddr > Falpatur; 49. gazanda > gezente. 20. barga > berke; 75. kargas > kerkez. I8. baybdn >bahmant; 37. cirdypa > Fraxpa; mumurxan.



Persian Loanwords in Anatolian Turkish


Sonorization may occur under various circumstances. Our material presents the following cases: p >b: II8: taxtapdo>tahtaboS, probably under folk-etymological influence. Preconsonantal f > v: 4. afsan > avsun(lamak); 6. *aftar > avcar;
70. kaf? > *kavS > kevis.

t > d: 43. dastdr > dasdar; 94. pa-taxta >pedahta; IOO. rdsta >
arasda; IOI. ri'ta > erisde; 120. taSt > deft. Initial s > z: IO6. sarbdr > zelber;Io9. sipdra > zipra.

Final s > z: 28. cap-rdst > fapraz; 75. kargas > kerkez;9I. palas > palaz. Postnasal q > g: zarin-qadah> zerengade. Initial and internal 6 > g: 25. cdh > cag, cak; 26. cambar> cember; > cob; 8. dlaza > aluca; Io. araqc-n > arakcun; 29. carb> cerp; 38. o6b xwdnca 66. > honca; 78. kMia> kiice; IO6. *sarbdr6a > 45. d6c1a dolca;
> serverce; I29. zdyca > zaca.

Spirantizationmay in many cases already have taken place dialectally in Persian. The following cases occur: Internal b >v (f): 50. gazangubin> gezengevi; 69. kdbfn > kevin; Io6. *sarbdrca> serverce;II6. tabxdna > tovhana,tafana; II7. tabxxdna > tavana, tafana.
q > x before unvoiced plosive: IO. araqisn > arahf,n; II9. tdqea >

tahca. Despirantization of x occurs initially and in postconsonantal position 63. xaygina > kaygsna; 66. xwdnca > gonfa; II. daxdna > askana; 30. carx > fark; 96. pe-sxwdn > peskun, pesgun. Initial aspiration and the dropping of initial aspiration has been mentioned above (see Vowels). The phoneme h in internal and final position is often dropped; sometimes it is transformedinto an f, a glide, or a y. Dropping of internal h: 39. dahra > tara; I35. zihgir > zikir. In the first of these two examples already Persian has a variant without h, but the Turkish variant may have developed independently. Here belong
also cases of x > h > 0 (II, II6, II7).

Dropping of final h: 25. cdh > fa(ltk); 97. pzh > pi; I34. zarsn-qadah> zerengade(dropping of final h after long vowel is common in colloquial Persian, too, and the records show that the phenomenon is old). h >f (and x > h >f): 7. axur > afr; 59. harifdna >ferfene; I35. zihgzr > ziifkiir. h > glide: 97. pih > piy; I35. zihgir > zeykir.
h >y:
Oriens 20

25. cdh > ag..



Andreas Tietze

A typical Turkish feature is the transformation of intervocalic or syllable-final g into a glide, and the interchangeablenessof this glide and of y with v.
g > glide: 35. caugdn > f6gen; I02. sagbdn > seymen. v > y or glide, and vice versa: I27. ydva > yaga; 35. caugdn > f6ven; I02. sagbdn > sevmen.

Nasalization of the labial plosive is frequent; usually it seems to take place under the influence of a following n (a phenomenon found also in Turkish words in the eastern part of the Ottoman-Azerbaijanidialect
area): I8. bdybdn > bagman; 2I. bl >mel; 37. cirdypd > zrahma, fzrakman; 6o. xarbanda > harmanda; I02. sagbdn > seyman.

Substitutions among liquids and nasals are common, especially lamdacism of the r:
r >1: 3I. carpdddr > alpatur; 39. dahra >dehle; 46. dirbbn > 88. mimn-rauyan > mumnlgan; Io6. diilbiin; 59. harifdna >felfana; sarbdr > zelber; I3I. zambirak > zenbildek; I36. zer-zamin > zelzeme. I > n: 25. cal > fan. 82. lauzsna > nevzine. n > 1: 46. diirbin > diildiil. m > n: 2. adnd > asma(lkk); 37. cirdypa > fzrakma > fzrapna; iii. sumtiras > sunturaf; I36. zer-zamin > zerzene.

In a few cases a syllable-final half-consonant is replaced by 1: 86.

mzrau > imral;

sagmdn > seymen > selmen. One case of substi-

tution of m for the glide may be based on extraphonetical reasons: 103.

sdliydn > salman.

Within the range of the sibilants the change from s to c occurs in three
different positions: III. sumtirds > sunturaf; 112. sadbads > oba;

tast > teft. The opposite development is represented by Io. araqczn> rasqin. In the change s > s in 3. afsar > afsar folk-etymologicalinfluence may have been instrumental. There are a few instances of direct consonantal assimilation: I0.
araqctn > araccin, araccun; 37. cirdypd > firappa, 9zrappa.

Some consonantal changes may be explained as dissimilation: 5. dftdva

> aktafa; 33. casma > tesme; 117. tabxxdna > tokhane.

We have in our material only a single case of consonantal gemination:

53. guman > hiimmen. Consonantal metathesis is frequent: o0. araqcin > arafkzn; 12. dsnd > asnaltk > aslansk; 28. cap-rdst > farpaz; 39. dahra > derhe; 103. sdliydn > saytlan, saylan; 105. sdrvdn > savran; io6. sarbdr > zebler. In two cases the shift takes place between a consonant and a vowel: 86. mirdu > imrav; 88. milm-rauyan > mumurgan.

Dropping of a consonant usually brings about the simplification of a

Persian Loanwords in Anatolian Turkish


consonant cluster. This can be said for the dropping of the f in 87. muft > mut, mot, of the t in I20. tast > tes, and probably of the n in 6I. xarsang > hersek, and in 99. rang > irek. But often the dropping of a consonant in one word is counterbalancedby the insertion of the same consonant in another word. E.g., preconsonantal r is dropped in 75. kargas > (ak)kekesand in io6. sarbdr > zeber, but r is inserted in 25. cdh > farh and I02. sagbdn > sermen, probably for hypercorrection. Similarly, a d is dropped in i. dukand > aukan and 47. firomdnda > fermana, but an inorganic d appears in I3I. zambirak > zenbildek;and a t is droppedin I00. rdsta > arasa and I25. ustun > iisiin, but in a case resemblingthe first example for the droppingof d, an inorganict is added: The droppingof half-consonants, I8. bdybdn,bdyvdn> bagvant,bahmant. in is not usually syllable-final position, surprising (86. mfrdu > mzra; II6. tabxdna> toxene,tohana; 36. cirdy > fira, ~zra;88. mim-rauyan > mumuran; I29. zayca > zaca). Also the development of a b after m can be easily explained. But there is a number (I36. zer-zamfn> zerzembi) of cases of dropping or insertion which cannot be explained easily on the phonetical level. In some cases we have to question the correctness of the recording. Unexplained cases of consonant dropping: I05. sdrvdn > arvan. Dropping of initial s does not occur otherwise. The entry is based on a single record. It needs verification. II2. sabas > saba. The form is well attested. Dropping of final g needs clarification. 136. zer-zamin> erzem. The mutilation of the beginning is perhaps due to a tendency to shorten and to dissimilation. Unexplained cases of consonantal addition at word end: 4I. ddna > denem. This development is explainable on the morphophonemic level. 45. dolca > dolcek.Probably, this development, too, can be explained on the morphophonemiclevel.
58. guga > ciicen.

60. xarbanda > harmandal. The development may be due to folketymological influence.
II7. tabxxdna > tokanak.

i. dbkand,dukand 'any hollow channel excavated by the rushing of a torrent; a place where water collects and stagnates; a pond' (Steingass, s.v.), from db, dw, du 'water' and the stem form of kandan 'to dig': avkant (Antalya), avgant (Antalya, Konya, Usak), avkan (Rize), avgan (Usak, Kiitahya, Denizli, Balikesir,Aydin, Isparta, Istanbul, Afyon, Kastamonu,


Andreas Tietze

Ankara) 'channel; underground water pipe; tunnel; water reservoir

lined with masonry, cistern' (DD 1.127, I28, AD I.I8).

2. dbrez,durez'a vessel used in baths for pouring water over the head and body; a bucket; a water-pipe, a spout; a drain, a ditch; a watercloset, privy' (Steingass,s.vv.), from db, dw, du 'water' and the stem form of rextan 'to pour': I. abrez (Kars: Aynm urugu) 'watercloset' (DoguIl 231); 2. avruz (Izmir: muhacir), havruz (Amasya), havrtz (Gaziantep),
hevriik (Kastamonu) 'chamber-pot' (DD I.I30, 723, AD I.I63, AnadAgiz

233, GazAgzl 3.396). The second type is widely spread and is also known in Istanbul and in the standard language; it occurs as a Turkismin some of the Balkan languages (e.g., Bulgarian, Bosnian). 3. afsar 'headstall' (Steingass, s.v.), 'halter; bridle' (Miller, s.v.), in Kurdish, often with sonorizationof the first consonant, but only recorded with initial aspiration: hefsar,hdvsar,h'dvsar (hevsar)'halter' (Kurdeov
315, Bakaev 413, 424, Farizov s.v. nedouzdok): avsar (Bursa) 'halter'

(DD 1.131). The change from s to ? may be due to folk-etymological influence (influence of the name of the Avshar tribe). 4. afs7n 'an incantation, a fascination, verses used in spells; fraud, deceit' (Steingass, s.v.), Manichaean Mid. Pers. 'pswn "spell, incantation": avszn (Klrsehir, Urfa, Gaziantep) 'the practice of reciting a spell and blowing over a sick person; the practice of pronouncinga spell over a person in order to make him immune against animal poison', with the verbal derivatives avsunlamak(Icel, Nigde), avsmnnamak (Urfa) 'to engage in these practices', and avsunlatmak(Burdur) 'to deceive; to get rid of'
(DD I. 131, 4.1618, GazAgzl 3.57, UrfaAgzl 93). Standard Azerbaijani

has the form ovsun (and derivatives), Standard Ottoman afsun. 5. dftdba,dftdva "a water-pot; a ewer; traveller's bottle" (Steingass, s.vv.), from db "water" and tdba "pan": aftafa (Kars: Karakoyunlu urugu), aktafa (Kars) 'water-pot, pitcher, ewer' (DD 1.85, Doguil 3, 231). The first form is identical with Standard Azerbaijani aftafa id. The Iranian loanwordappearsin Turkish already in the IIth century (Atalay: Divanii lugat-it-tiirk dizini s.v. aftabl). 6. afzdr "a tool, an implement" (Haim, s.v.), with variants avzdr, auzdr "tools; spiceries, hot seasonings" (Steingass, s.v.), "a tool" (Haim, s.v.), and abzdr "a tool; spices, seasoning" (Haim, s.v.), Pahl. afcdr "Instrument, Gerat", with Arm. aucan, aucar "Hilfsmittel, Arznei" (Nyberg, s.v. afcdr): avcar (Seyhan, Diyarbekir, Maras,Gaziantep) 'tool; hunting materials like gunpowder, bullets, small shot, cartridges, etc.'
(DD 1.126); avcar (Kayseri, Maras, Gaziantep, Seyhan, Nigde, Kars)

'spices; spices used in the preparation of dried meat (pastzrma);taste,

flavor' (DD 1.126, AD 1.17, KaysS6z 7), with the derivatives avcarlamak

Persian Loanwordsin AnatolianTurkish


(Itel) 'to spice (food) in order to prevent corruption' (DD I.I27) and avcarsiz, evcersiz (Nigde) 'rude, unpolished (person), inconsiderate
(talker); incoherent (talk)' (DD I.I26 f. s.v. avcar, 127, AnadAgiz 204).

The origin of the Turkish forms is not the standard Persian form afzdr, but a dialectal form *afgdr, *afzdr, which may perhaps be recognized in A?tiyani owzdr "beam (of plough)" (Kiya, Giiyi? i Astiyan io). The relation between the two meanings "tool" and "spices"is not quite clear. 7. dxur "a stall for horses" (Steingass, s.v.), "a manger, a stall" (Haim, s.v.), Pahl. dxvar id. cf. Arm. axur, Kurd. axyl (axil), axoi id. (Kurdoev 4I, Bakaev 14, Farizov s.v. khlev), but Kurdish has also a variant afyi (afir) 'manger' (Jaba-Justi I3, Kurdoev 39, Bakaev 33, Farizov s.v. yasli), cf. Georg. axori 'hay-rack': axor (Kars), axtr (Gaziantep), ahzr (Mugla),afur (Kastamonu, Giresun, Ordu) 'stall for a horse; stable'
(DD 1.79, Dogutl I50, 23I, GazAgzl 3.34, AnadAglz 201, KuzeyDogu

43, 305); ahir (Izmir, Bursa: muhacir), afur (Kastamonu, Sinop, Zonguldak) 'manger' (DD 72, 79). The first type ('stall; stable') was as axor, modern ahir, the Standard Ottoman term, whereas the second type ('manger') corresponds to Standard Azerbaijani axur. Because of the interference of the standard word, the listings in dialect dictionaries are quite sketchy. A third semantical type, designating a drinking basin for
animals at a fountain (ahzr, agzr, ahur, DD 74, 79, 80, I604) seems to be

a blending of this word with the synonymous axar (ahar,akar DD s.vv.), an aorist derivative of Turk. aq-, ax- 'to flow' (possibly, it is found in Persian as Turkish loanword, see the listing in Steingass). The Iranian loanword is recorded in Turkish in the IIth century (aqur,Atalay: Divanfi lugat-it-tiirk dizini s.v. akur). Ottoman has been a center of diffusion of the word (cf. Arab dxir 'ecurie' DozySuppl I.I; Greek cXo6p, Andriotis 30, HistLex 3.384, I6th c. Moravcsik ByzTurc Serb. Lokotsch no. 36, etc.) 2.83; Bulg. 8. dluica"damson or prunella" (Haim, s.v.), "prunella;mirabelleplum, small plum" (Miller,s.v.), from dli 'plum' with the diminutive suffix -6a: aluf (Elaziz), aluca (Diyarbakir), alfa (Elaziz, Van) 'wild plum; green
plum' (DD 1.94, 4.I6I0, GiineyDogu 262, Anadil 218). Standard Azerbaijani has alca. The word is not known in Standard Ottoman.

9. angusta 'a fork for winnowing grain' (Steingass, s.v.), from angu?t 'finger' and the denominal formans -a: engiiste (Tokat) 'tongs' (DD 2.538). Io. araqcin 'a handkerchief, napkin, sudary; a little cap' (Steingass, s.v.), from araq (from Arab. 'araq) 'sweat' and fin, the stem form of fidan 'to gather': arakf9n (Ankara, Malatya, Tokat, Kiitahya, Manisa),
arakcmn (Ankara, Erzurum, Kastamonu, Sivas), arahcm (Kayseri),



arapon(Samsun), araccin (Trabzon),rasktn, rasqzn (Ballkesir) 'skullcap, nightcap; skullcap of pink cambric; velvet skullcap with embroidered
edges' (DD I.I08, 4.I615, AD 1.12, 2. 117, AnadDial I.I99, TrabFolk

260); arakzin (Sivas, ?orum, Izmir, Konya, Denizli, Malatya), arahzsn (Kayseri), araccun(Amasya), arask (Kars; perhaps erroneousfor araskin, which would be close to the Standard Azerbaijaniform), erehcin(?orum) 'high ornamentalheadgearworn by the bride at the wedding' (DD 4.I615,
AD 1.126, 2.7); arakctn (Afyon) 'richly ornamented scarf worn by the bride' (DD 4.I615); arafkzn (qanakkale) 'loosely woven head scarf' (DD 4.I614); erakcin (Kayseri) 'bridal crown plaited with ears of wheat' (AD 2.54); arak9zn, erakgin (Kayseri) 'bride's wedding dress made of ears of wheat' (KaysSoz 6, 34); arafkzn (Istanbul) 'beret' (DD 4.I614).

Standard Ottoman knew the term araqgzn'a linen cap worn under a turban' (Redhouse, s.v.), which has become obsolete together with the Sache, but Standard Azerbaijani still uses aragein, araSgin 'skullcap' (Hfisejnov, s.vv.). The formation of the Persian word must have been conditioned by the Arabic term (recorded in the IIth century, cf. DozySuppl., s.v.) 'araqiya for several kinds of headgear. II. dsxdna 'a kitchen, a cook's shop' (Steingass, s.v.), from as 'soup, etc.' and xdna 'house': asana (Ordu),asene (Amasya), askana (Erzincan) 'kitchen' (DD 1.122, AD 2.8, KuzeyDogu 307). The word is also used in Standard Ottoman (ashdne)and Standard Azerbaijani (asxdnd). 12. asnd 'a friend, companion, comrade, acquaintance', with the derivative asndi 'friendship, acquaintance' and the phrase dsndi dddan 'to give signs of recognition, to make oneself known to each other as acquaintances,after intercoursehaving been interrupted' (Steingass, s.vv.), Pahl. dsndk:asna (Mus: Terekeme agzl) 'friend, acquaintance' (Anadil 220); asmaltk (Maras,Seyhan), aslantk (Urfa) 'joking, plaisanterie' (DD
4.1618, AD 2.8). The Persian loanword is found in the two literary langu-

ages, Ottoman (dsind)and Azerbaijani (dsnd),and the derivedform dsndi is paralleled by the Turkish derivative in -luk,-lhg. It is likely that the variants with the meaning'joking,plaisanterie'originatefromthe standard language; but this can hardly be assumed for the unsuffixed variant. I3. dvang 'a line on which clothes or bunches of grapes are hung up to dry' (Steingass, s.v.), a derivative of the root of avextan "to hang": hevek(Kayseri, Corum,Ankara, Gaziantep), hevenk(Gaziantep)'bunches of grapes, pears, apples, pomegranates, etc., suspended on a rope or stick to keep them for the winter' (DD 2.723, KaysSoz 44, GazAgzi
3.400). The variant hevenk is used in Standard Ottoman.

The initial aspirationmay be due to a blendingof the word with another

PersianLoanwordsin AnatolianTurkish


Persian loanword, Pers. hdvan'mortar',from which is derived Ott. havan, but also, with blending, Azerb. hdvdng. I4. dvdra 'lost, annihilated; ruined; scattered; destitute of name or character; an exile, outcast, vagabond, vagrant' (Steingass, s.v.): avara (Bolu, Samsun, Seyhan, Manisa, Konya, Zonguldak, Izmir, Kars, Kiitahya, Bilecik, Ankara, Nigde, Klrsehir, Kastamonu, Sinop, Malatya, Gaziantep) 'poor, infertile soil; bad, weak; inactive, idle' (DD 1.126, GazAgzl 3.56). The last meaning, occurring in a saying (cf. GazAgzl 2.I24), may be derived from Standard Ottoman. In Standard Azerbaijani (dvdra,dvdra) and in Standard Ottoman (avdre)the word means 'idle; idler, vagabond'. I5. ayvdn 'a sofa; a portico, open gallery, verandah, balcony on the top of the house, for the benefit of the prospect and fresh air; a palace' (Steingass, s.v.): ayvan (Erzincan, Diyarbekir, Elaziz, Ankara, Itel, Giresun, Erzurum, ?ankir, Rize, Kocaeli, Balikesir, Kars; Sivas: Karapapah agzl), eyvan (Malatya, Elaziz, Van, Corum, Bitlis) 'balcony; roof balcony; flat roof; platform; three-walledhut or room, open on one side; drying loft for fruit, etc.; verandah; hall, military depot' (DD 1.142,
2.567, AD 2.56, SivasTokat 219, GiineyDogu 264, AnadIl 237, 238).

The term, today obsolete, is recorded in older sources of Standard Ottoman. I6. dzana 'a tool for notching millstones' (Steingass, s.v.), a derivative
of dSadan, daidan "to prick, pierce, sew": acene (Kayseri), ecene (Sivas,

forum, Ankara, Klrsehir, Ordu, Burdur), ecine (Kayseri) 'tool for cutting a hole in wood or metal; tool for cutting a hole in a scythe for insertion of the handle; tool for punching holes in leather; stonemason's chisel'
(DD 1.67, 2.505, AD 1.115, KaysSoz 3,

17. bag 'tribute; toll levied by the road-patrol' (Steingass, s.v.),

Old Pers. bdfi- "tribute": pa9 (Afyon, Elazlg, Maras, Gaziantep, Seyhan)

'tax, tribute; share; capital', with the derivative paFcz (Gaziantep), bacszc (Giimishane, Yozgat) 'collector of tax or tribute' (DD 3.1127,

GazAgzl 3.546). The term bdc was common in older Ottoman; it

is obsolete in the modern Standard Ottoman-Turkish,but still used in Standard Azerbaijani. I8. bdyban, bdyvdn 'a gardener; a vine-dresser' (Steingass, s.vv.), from bdy 'garden; vineyard' and -ban, -vdn 'keeper, guardian': bagvan (Van), bagman(Mus:Terekemeagzl; Kars: Ayrm agzl), bagvant(Kayseri),
bahmant (Eskisehir), and, with a Turkish suffix, bagvanci (Van), bagmancs

(Kars: Terekeme agzl) 'gardener;keeper of a vineyard; vineyard guard'

(DD I.I55, 4.1622, Dogull 1.233, Anadtl 221). The variant bagman (Giresun) 'garden; kitchengarden' (DD 4.1622, KuzeyDogu 307) can be


Andreas Tietze

explained as derived from the overcharacterizedvariant in -cz. Standard Azerbaijani has bdybdn 'gardener'; this form was also used in older literary Ottoman. For the development of the final -t in some variants, we can point to a Standard Ottoman parallel: pazvant 'watchman',from Pers. pdsbdn, pasvdn id. 19. bdrddn'a large wallet; a cloak-bag, a portmanteau, etc.' (Steingass, s.v.), from bar 'burden, load, baggage, pack' and -ddn 'container of': bardan (Erzurum) 'large sack of goat's hair, for carrying straw' (DD

Standard Azerbaijani bcrddnis glossed as 'large sack for fibrous raw materials like cotton, wool, silk, etc.' 20. barga "something suggestive of a leaf", barga i zarddlu, hulii "dried apricots, or peaches, cut in lobes" (Haim, s.v.), from barg "leaf" and the suffix -a: berge(Sivas, Afyon, Amasya, Malatya), berke(Erzurum)
'apricot; wild apricot (zerdali)' (DD I.I92, I93, SivasTokat


the compound bergefiri (Sivas) 'dried apricot' (SivasTokat 220); berge (Sivas) 'peach' (DD I.192). Apricots are preserved and marketed in dried form, thus the term for the dry fruit can easily become a Wanderwort. For a parallel, compare Russian orjuk, urjuk 'dried apricot', a Turkic loanword (Kirg. iriik, Uzb. urik, Bashk. orok, KazanTat. orek, etc.), or English raisin, from French raisin 'grape'. 21. bel 'a shovel, spade' (Steingass, s.v.): bel (Kayseri, Gaziantep; Anatolia), bil (Ankara), mel (Ordu) 'spade; gardener's pickaxe; narrow
hoe' (DD 3.1048, AD



GazAgzl 3.86), with the compound

otbeli (Konya) 'shovel for ashes' (DD 4.1701), the expression bel depmek (Gaziantep) 'to work over with a spade' (GazAgzl3.86), and the derivative bellemek(Gaziantep) 'to dig over with a spade' (GazAgzl3.88). The variant bel is used in Standard Azerbaijani and Standard Ottoman. 22. belca 'small shovel, small spade', from bel 'shovel, spade' and the diminutive suffix -ca: belfe(recordedin Antalya, from a native of Kerkiik)
'shovel' (DD I.I84).

boy 'odour, fragrance, perfume; scent, spice' (Steingass, s.v.), cf. boy-afzdr, bozdr "spice, seasoning" (Steingass, s.v.): boy (Bursa, Icel, Giresun, ;orum, Maras, Isparta, Giimiisane, Kayseri), poy (Tekirdag; Istanbul: muhacir) 'a preparation of ground cumin seeds and other spices, used as coating for meat preserve (pasttrma);cumin seeds' (DD
1.220, 3.162,

KaysS6z I3).

24. eddar 'a tent, pavilion; a mantle, scarf; a veil; a sheet; a shroud, winding-sheet; a table-cloth' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. cdtur, Astiyani eddera (Kiya 42): fadzr (Malatya, Teke) 'tent', (Malatya, Sivas) 'sheet

(as woman's outer garment, or bed sheet)', (Edirne, Izmir, Teke) 'umbrella' (DD 4.I640, AD 1.6I, SivasTokat 223), with the compounds

fadzrbezi (Zonguldak) 'cambric', and fadsretegi (Ankara) 'rain cloud covering the whole sky' (DD 4.I640). Standard Azerbaijaniand Standard Ottoman have the meaning 'tent'; therefore the dialect dictionaries do not reflect the full distribution of this meaning. Another type belonging to the same root is attested by Standard Kurd. cadrd(Bakaev 437), Russ. cadra, etc., 'woman's AzerbaijaniCadra, outer garment', which is also dialectically recorded in Anatolia: fadira
(Manisa) id. (DD 1.29I).

'a well, pit' (Steingass, s.v.), also Kurd. cah (fah) 'pit; well' 25. Cdah (Kurdoev 148): fah (Erzincan, Giimiisane, Samsun, Malatya), faha (Kastamonu), farh (Elazlg, Istanbul), Fag (Konya, Giresun, Elazlg, ;anakkale, Kayseri, Ankara, Bursa, Sivas, Afyon, Tokat, Klrsehir, Kastamonu), cag (Nigde, Konya, Zonguldak, Tokat, Canakkale, Ordu, Amasya, Kars, (orum, Bursa, Elazlg), cak (Kayseri), cal (Erzurum), fal (Van), falh (Erzincan), fan (Malatya), with the derivatives fagltk (Amasya, Ankara, Cankin, Eskisehir, Bursa, Giresun, Kastamonu, Samsun), falsk (Bursa), 'kitchen sink with water tap, drain, and sewer or cesspool, or any part of this installation; installation for washing hands
and face; washroom (gusiilhane) with floor drain' (DD 1.244, 245, 29I, 292, 293, 296, 30I, 306, 4.I64I, I642, AD 1.49, 6i, 66, KaysS6z I9),

also in the compounds fagevi (Nigde), faghlkbucags(?ankin) 'washroom (gusiilhane)'(Ad 1.6I). The washroom for complete ablution (in Turkish gusiil) is required in every Muslim household. It is, furthermore,customary to gather the water from the kitchen sink and the water from the toilet in two separate cesspools in order to protect remnants of bread (which is venerated as God's gift) against defilement. The variants with I have to be connected with Pers. cdl, dala,cdli "pit, hollow" (Haim, s.vv.), Kurd. c'al (cal)
'pit' (Kurdoev 148).

26. cambar 'a kerchief, collar, necklace' (Steingass, s.v.): ,ember (Trabzon, Gaziantep, Kastamonu, Ankara, Edirne, Seyhan, Sinop, Kocaeli, Konya, Ballkesir, Bilecik, Manisa, 1eel, Istanbul, Amasya, Izmir, Rize), 9omber(Trabzon),cember(Isparta, Ordu, ?ankir, Antalya, Kiitahya, ?anakkale, Ankara, Icel, forum), cenber (Ankara, Bolu, Seyhan), felber (Avsar dialect) 'headkerchief, scarf' (DD 1.252, 321,
AD I.70,GazAgzl 3.I53, KuzeyDogu 314).

Possibly, another type has to be connected with this one: fanpzr (Mugla)'head scarf made of white material (hiimayun)'(DD 4.I643), with fampzr (Kiitahya), fanpur (Konya), sampszr(Sivas) 'cambric' (DD I.30I,

303, 3.1273). However, the unvoiced labial stop and the vowel are hard

to explain. 27. -ang 'the expanded hand, the fingers somewhat hooked; the claw of a wild beast; talon of a bird' (Steingass, s.v.), also Kurd. cdng, cdtng (geng) 'paw' (Kurdoev 158, Bakaev 447): Fenge(Bitlis) 'paw', (recorded in Istanbul from a native of Kerkiik) 'the open hand, the palm' (DD

The type belongs to Standard Azerbaijani c'ngd 'the open hand with the five fingers'. 28. caprdst, caprds 'a silk button; a buckle, breastplate, badge; unsteadiness (a turning from left to right and vice versa)' (Steingass, s.v.), from cap 'left' and rdst 'right' with Kurd. capraz (9apraz) 'iron breast-plate' (Kurdoev I50): Fapras (Amasya), Fapraz, Farpaz (Sivas) 'hook or buckle in front of dress; silver ornament in front of dress'
(DD 4.1643, SivasTokat 69, 224); Farpaz (Tunceli, Van, Bitlis; Mus:

Terekeme agzl) 'crosswise, transversal, diagonal' (GiineyDogu 270, Anadll 228); Fapras(Gaziantep), 9arpaz (Konya) 'a horse's having white socks on the right front leg and the left hind leg, or vice versa' (DD 4.1643, AD I.66); Farpaz(Istanbul) 'screw for tightening smith's pliers' (AD 1.66); parpaz (Kayseri) 'mixture of rye and wheat' (AD I.66); has Fapraz'waistcoat fastened by frogs; crossing, crosswise'; therefore, the recordingsin the dialect dictionaries are incomplete. 29. carb 'fat, greasy', Pahl. carp: cerp (Isparta) 'layer of grease on
bouillon' (DD 4.1632). 30. carx 'wheel; spinning-wheel', Avest. caxra-: park (Izmir, Antalya) 'winding-wheel' (DD 1.306). Since the word is a common loanword 9apraz (Ankara) 'snow mixed with rain' (DD 1.305), with the expressions ala9aprak (Diyarbekir),alaFarpak (Van) id. (DD 1.88). Standard Ottoman

3I. cdrpdddr, cdrvdddr 'a carrier; a muleteer; a driver of beasts of

burden; a sumpter' (Haim, s.vv.), from cdrpd 'quadruped' (cdr, cahdr 'four' and pd 'foot') and -ddr 'having, possessing'; also Kurd. carvadar
(9arvedar) 'groom' (Kurdoev 151): Falpatur (Kars) 'leader of a caravan, muleteer' (DD I.299). Standard Azerbaijani has carvadar 'keeper of

pack-animals'. 32. cdryak 'one fourth; a quarter', cdrak 'a quarter' (Haim, s.vv.), from car, cahdr 'four' and yak 'one': Ferik (?orum, Giresun, Nigde, Erzincan, Giimiisane) 'a measure for grain, equalling 4 okkas; a measure for grain equalling 24 okkas; a measure for grain, equalling 60 okkas; a measure for grain, equalling one sinik (i.e., a quarter bushel); oo00

dirhems; 50 dirhems' (DD 4.I646). The 'quarter', Standard Azerb. 6drdk, Standard Ottoman Geyrek,is a general loanword applying to various matters. 33. aslma'a fountain, source, spring', from caSm 'eye' and the suffix -a, with the Kurdish variant &eSma (,esme) 'toilet, privy' (Kurdoev I65): fesme (Gaziantep)'toilet, privy' (GazAgzl3.I56); tesme (Izmir) 'fountain, spring' (DD 3.1348). The form with initial t-, perhaps to be explained as dissimilation, is also found in Syrian Arabic tasme 'latrines' (Barthelemy 85), where it is a loanword from Turkish. 34. 6atr 'an umbrella, parasol', Sanskrit chattra-'parasol', with Kurd. Cdtyr(fetir) id. (Kurdoev 162): getir (Kars: Terekeme agzl) 'umbrella'
(DD 1.329, DoguIl 239). The variant belongs to the area of Standard

id. Azerbaijani cditir 35. caugdn "a stick with one end bent, used in a game at ball; the game of polo or horse-shinty; a crooked drum-stick; a stick having one end arched, to which is suspended an iron or steel ball, carried as an ensign of royalty" (Steingass, s.v.), with an arabicized variant gaukdn "polo-stick; the game of polo", a derivative (Steingass), Pahl. C6pakdn of cob "wood; stick", with Kurd. cidwgan (9ewgan),cogan (Fogan)'stick; crutch; the game of polo' (Kurdoev 162, 172) and Armenian googan 'stick, crook': cogen ((orum), ,ogen (Urfa), o-gen(Kastamonu, Antalya, Diyarbaklr, Konya, Urfa, Erzincan, Ankara, Malatya, Gaziantep, Giimiisane), 0oggen (Konya), oiven (Gaziantep) 'stick, cane, shepherd's crook; hooked stick for bending down high branches; yoke for carrying
water pails' (DD 1.285, 375, AD 1.83, GazAgzl 3.I75, UrfaAgzi I03). The Persian loanword is found as fevgdn in older literary Ottoman

sources as the term for 'polo-stick'. 36. cirdy 'a lamp; light; the wick of a candle' (Steingass, s.v.), with Kurd. c'yra (9ira), c'yray (Firax) 'lamp' (Kurdoev I69, Bakaev 451): fzrag (Denizli), ,ira (Bahkesir), p,ra (Gaziantep, Kayseri, Klrsehir, Ankara, Seyhan, Konya, Kastamonu) 'oil or kerosene lamp; light' (DD
1.340, KaysSoz 23, AnadDial I.I60, I6I, GazAgzl 3.I61), with the com-

pound foban tzrasz(Istanbul) 'asparagus', (Tokat) 'a certain plant used as firewood' (DD 4.1650) and the derivatives 9iralk (Konya) 'lampstand', (;orum) 'small metal kerosene lamp' (DD 4.1648) and ,zralamak (Izmir) 'to light (a fire)' (DD 4.I648). Standard Azerbaijani has cirdg 'lamp', whereas Standard Ottoman 9tra has the meaning 'resinouswood for kindling a fire'. The Standard Ottoman doublet 9zrakmeans 'apprentice'. 37. cirdypd 'foot of a lamp; portable lamp; candle-stick' (Steingass, s.v.), from cirdy 'lamp' and pd 'foot', with Kurd. c'yrap'e (firape) 'lamp-

stand' (Kurdoev I69): Fzrakpa (Bitlis), szrappa (Klrsehir), fzrakma (Ankara,Kayseri, KlrSehir,?anakkale, Nigde, Bolu, Gaziantep), firahma (Bursa, Bolu, Nigde, Ankara, Giresun, (Klrsehir,Nigde, Bolu), zarakman Kocaeli, Sivas, Bilecik, Mugla, Yozgat, Samsun) 'lampstand; candlestick' (DD 4.1647, 1648, AD 1.75, GazAgzl 3.161; ilustrations in Alaca-

Hoyiik, pl. VII no. 38, pl. IX no. 64); firappa (Konya), fzraxpa (Van), zarapna(Izmir), ztrakma(t9el, Konya, Manisa, Klrsehir, Aydin, Izmir, Kayseri), szrakla(Yozgat), zsrakman(Kayseri, Balikesir) 'small oil or
kerosene lamp' (DD 1.340, 357, 4.1647, 1648, AD 2.34, KaysSoz 23, Anadtl 229); firakma (Istanbul: muhacir), ,zrakman (Edirne), 9zrak

(Isparta) 'saddler'sor tanner's tripod; tripod for shoeing oxen or waterbuffaloes' (DD 1.340, 4.1648); frakma (Istanbul?) 'minaret' (DD 4.1647);

qzrakman(?anakkale, Edirne) 'pile of sesame sheaves' (DD 4.1648);

zsrakman (Ankara) 'waterfall' (DD 1.340, 4.1648); zarahba (Giimiisane),

Vtrahma (Klrsehir), fzrakman (tIel; Istanbul: muhacir) 'boys' game consisting of landing a spool in a hole by hitting it with sticks' (DD 1.340); zrakman (Ankara) 'apprentice' (AD 1.75 f.). The last-mentioned variant has to be associated with Standard Ottoman 9zrak'apprentice', which derives from Persian cirdy 'client, dependent'. The semantical development underlying the types designating 'waterfall'and the boys' game is not clear. Among the fishermenof Istanbul, the term fzrakmanis used for 'beaconlighted to attract fish by night'. A problem is posed by the widely distributed variant ending in -n: Are we here confronted with an internal Turkish development? Or do these etyma go back to another Persian etymon? Standard Azerbaijani has 'illunlination', obviously a loanword from Persian (from which crdaybdn word?), but semantically remote. Persian cirdybdna'lamp-stand; candle stick' fits semantically, but not in form. (The isolated variant ;zrabana 'fire-place', from Istanbul: muhacir, quoted in DD 1.340, can hardly be connected with it). It, therefore, seems safer to assume a Turkish development. 38. cob 'a log; wood; a tree; a staff, rod, baton, stick; a drum-stick, etc.' (Steingass, s.v.): oop (Izmir), cop (Anatolia), cob (SouthernAnatolia,
Bolu, Afyon, Ankara, Klrsehir) 'thick stick with knob' (DD 1.283, 369,

AD I.58); cop (?anakkale) 'woodenpeg which holds the parts of a wheel's felloe together' (DD 1.285); cob dikmek (Southern Anatolia) 'a game in which sticks are thrust into soft ground or mud' (AD I.59). Modern Standard Ottoman has cop 'truncheon, policeman's baton'. The voicedness of the majority of variants requiresclarification. Perhaps, an intermediary language has to be assumed for the borrowing, e.g., Armenian t'sub 'stick'.

39. dahra, ddra 'scythe, sickle; reaping-sickle; a pruning-hook; a farrier's instrument for paring horses' hoofs; a small two-edged, sickleformed, sharp dagger' (Steingass, s.vv.), with Kurd. dehre'spade' (JabaJusti, s.v.): dehre(Amasya, Karak6se, Giresun,ElAzig,Malatya, Giimiisane, Van, Urfa), derhe (Malatya), dehle (Ankara), dahra (Konya, Ankara, Kayseri, Nigde, Corum, Amasya, gankin, Tokat, Gaziantep, Maras, Kirsehir), darha (Ankara),tahra (Ankara,Denizli, Tokat, Konya, Aydin, Izmir, Tekirdag, Trabzon, Bursa, Kiitahya, Kastamonu, Zonguldak, I9el, Afyon, Eskisehir, Istanbul, Rize, Bilecik, ?oruh, Isparta; Manisa: muhacir; Bahkesir: muhacir), tahara (Trabzon), tara (Aydin, Balkesir,

(DD 1.394, 412, 3.I300); tare (Eskisehir) 'stone-mason's tool shaped like a butcher's knife' (AnadIl 279).

Standard Azerbaijani has ddhrd 'chopping-knife,cleaver'. In modern Standard Ottoman the type does not exist, but it is recorded as dahra, tahra 'pruning-sickle' in sources of the XVI-XVIIIth centuries (cf.
TTS, vols. 2-4, s.vv.).

40. ddn 'grain', also Kurd. dan 'grain' (collectively) (Jaba-Justi 172,
Kurdoev I80): den (Siirt) 'wheat cleaned of the bran', (Erzincan) 'seeds

of vetch', (Karak6se) 'grains (of maize, pomegranate, etc.)', (Giimiisane)

'bread crumbs, remnants of food' (DD 1.416). Standard Azerbaijani has dan 'grain'; in Standard Ottoman the type is missing. 4I. ddna 'grain; a berry; stone of fruit, seed of grain or fruit', (Steingass, s.v.), also "piece (counting word)", from ddn 'grain' and -a: ddnd (Balikesir, Isparta, Afyon), dene (Giimiisane, Sinop, Gaziantep, Ankara,

Konya), ddni (Denizli), tdnd (Manisa), tene (Gaziantep, i9el, Urfa;

Southern Anatolia), denem (Mugla) 'grain, seed; berry; piece (counting word)' (DD 1.416, 3I.339, AD 1.376, AnadDial I.I63, GazAgzl 3.663, UrfaAgzl 136, GiineyBatl I07, 122), with many derivatives and com-

pounds. The distribution of this general loanword is not fully reflected in the dialect dictionaries (StandardAzerbaijaniddnd,Standard Ottoman ddne, tdne). 42. darz 'a joint, the joining of the skull, a suture, a seam; a rent in a garment which has been sewed up' (Steingass, s.v.), "a crevice, an interstice" (Haim, s.v.), also Kurd. ddrz (derz) 'split, rift, flaw; scratch;

Standard Azerbaijani has taya 'wet-nurse'. In Ottoman, the term ddye is restricted to the older literary language. The voiceless initial is found in some north-western Iranian dialects, Gilaki tdye (Sootoodeh, Farhang i gilaki 49), Astiyani tdyya (Kiya, Gfiyisi Astiyan 26). 45. dolca 'a leathern bucket' (Steingass, s.v.), from dol (from Syr. daula) and the diminutive suffix -ca: dolca (Kars, Bursa, ?ankin),
dulFe (Erzurum) 'scoop, dipper; drinking-mug' (DD 1.455, 472); dolcek

'well-bucket' (DD 1.464). Standard Azerbaijani has dolca 'jug; large milk-pail'. Cf. Georg. tolca 'pitcher, jug'. 46. dirbin 'far-sighted; a telescope', from dir 'far' and the verbal element -bin 'seeing': diilbiin (Sivas), diildiil (Antalya, Malatya; Southern Anatolia; Ankara: Tiirkmenler) 'telescope' (DD 1.482, AD 1.112, SivasTokat 229). Older Ottoman and Standard Azerbaijani have the form dirbin, modern Standard Ottoman diirbiin.In the meaning 'farsighted', the Persian word is old: as a term for 'telescope' it may be an Ottoman creation; it occurs in Ottoman sources of the I7th century. Since the modern term is of common usage, the dialect dictionaries do not reflect the distribution of the type. 47. firomdnda 'broken, weak, fatigued, tired, dejected, depressed, oppressed; helpless; without relief; bewildered, amazed; defective' (Steingass, s.v.), from firo 'down, downward' and mdnda, participle of the verb mdndan 'to remain; to be fatigued': fermana (Sivas) 'weak' (DD 2.574). The immediate source is probably literary Ottoman fiirymdnde'exhausted'.

48. ganduma 'a kind of grain deprived of the husk' (Steingass, s.v.), "gruau de froment ou semoule" (Desmaisons,s.v.), from gandum'wheat' and the individualizing suffix -a: kendime(Kars) 'brokengrains of pounded wheat (bulgur)'(DD 4.1686). 49. gazanda 'biting, stinging; injurious, hurtful; venomous, noxious; a venomous reptile or reptiles' (Steingass, s.v.), 'a biting creature, a stinger' (Haim, s.v.), active participle of the verb gazzdan 'to bite; to sting': gezente (Edirne, Ankara; Southern Anatolia), gezenti (Tekirdag; Edirne: muhacir), kezenti (Denizli) 'pest, an insect infesting vegetables, melon plants, and in particular broad-beans; person who moves around too much' (DD 2.624, 893, AD I.I44). The last-mentioned meaning is a folk-etymological interpretation associating the word with the Turkish verb stem gez- 'to wander around'. 50. gazangubzn(and gazangu, Steingass, Vullers) "manna", from gaz "tamarisk" and angubin "honey": I. gezengevi(Elazig, Diyarbaklr, Mardin)', II. gezengi (Elazig), gezen (tIel) 'manna' (DD 2.624). 5I. girau 'a wager, stake, bet; a pledge, pawn, deposit, earnest; a contract' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. grav, cf. girau dddan "to put in pledge, to pawn" (Miller, s.v.), with Kurd. gyrav (girav), gyrev (girev) 'pawn' (Kurdoev 282, 283, Bakaev io6): girav (Malatya) in the expression girava vermek'to pawn, to mortgage' (DD 2.638).

4. I692).

Standard Azerbaijani has girda 'round', but the term for 'kind of round cake' is found in Anatolian literary sources of the I4th-I8th centuries (cf. TTS, vols. I-4, s.v. kirde). 53. guman 'doubt, suspicion, surmise; opinion, fancy, supposition, imagination; conceit, pride, haughtiness' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. guman, with Kurd. goman, gumnan'hope, faith; opinion; thought; doubt' (Kurdoev 292, Bakaev Ioo): guman (Ankara, Zonguldak, Klrsehir, Kayseri, Trabzon), guman (Trabzon, Ankara), giiman (Adana, Mara,, Van; Eastern Anatolian nomads), giimen (Seyhan, Ankara, Denizli, ICel, Antalya, Urfa, Sivas; Eastern Anatolian nomads), kuman (Ordu), iimmen (Manisa) 'hope, illusion; thought, opinion, guess; surmise, suspicion' (DD 2.685, 759, AD I.I53, 2.65, 66, SivasTokat 240, OrtaAnad 242,

GiineyDogu 287, DoguIl 255, KuzeyDogu 333, AnadIl 250, TrabFolk 62, 272). The type, which in the form giimdn occurs in the two standard



languages, is not very common in Standard Ottoman, for which reason it is not overlooked by the dialect dictionaries. 54. gina 'colour; species; form, figure, external appearance, mode, manner, kind' (Steingass, s.v.), from gun 'colour, form manner, etc.' and -a: gone (Tekirdag?) 'color; kind, quality' (DD 2.659). 55. gunda "a lump of dough" (Steingass, s.v.), with a variant yunda id., Pahl. gund(ak)id., Arm. gund, gundak "sphere, ball", Avest. gunda"Mehlteig, Teigballen" (Bartholomae, Altir. Worterbuch 525): kiinde (Afyon, Kars, Kerkiik), kiint (Van, Erzurum, Erzincan, Bitlis, Kayseri, Ankara, Kars) 'lump of dough ready to be baked into one loaf; potter's clay' (DD 2.1008, IOIO, AD 1.259, KaysSoz 63, Dogutl 264); kunt (Giimiisane,Erzurum) 'lump of dough for the preparation of flat bread'
(DD 2.993). To this belongs Standard Azerbaijani kiindd 'lump of dough'.

56. gung 'dumb; one who converses by signs; stupid' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. gung, with Kurd. kung 'mute' (JabaJusti 344): kiink (Denizli) 'tongue-tied; having a poor memory, unintelligent (child)' (DD 2.oo009). 57. yalladdn' a granary', from yalla, borrowed from Arabic, 'corn, grain' and the element -dan 'container of': kaladan (Samsun, Sinop),
kaldan (Samsun) 'small storage unit within a granary' (DD 2.815, 4.1672, AD I.I96, I97).

58. gugia 'a chicken, a poult' (Steingass, s.v.): ciice (Samsun, Sivas, ?orum) 'chicken' (DD 4.I639). To this type, possibly, also belongs ciicen (Giresun, Ordu) 'chick' (DD 4.1639). Standard Azerbaijani has giidg 'chick'. 59. harifdna 'in a companionablemanner', from harzf,borrowedfrom Arabic, 'associate, companion, mess-mate' and the suffix -ana, an action modifier: harfene (Gaziantep), herfene (Kars, Erzurum, Isparta, Kayseri, Sivas), halfene (Gaziantep),ferfene (Karak6se, ?anki, Ankara, Kayseri), felfana (Nigde), erfane ((ankir), erfene (Tiirkmenagzl), dlfdnd (Antalya, Isparta) 'a feast or picnic where each participant contributes

jeden seine Portion'. The modernstandardform is drifdne.The loanword seems to have entered Anatolian Turkish through Standard Ottoman. 60. xarbanda 'an ass-owner, muleteer' (Steingass, s.v.): harmanda (Seyhan, Gaziantep, Maras), harmandal (Adana) 'servant who looks after someone's pack-animals; caravan-leader's assistant; servant,
groom' (DD 2.706, GazAgZi 3.39I).

6I. xarsang 'a large rough stone; heaps of gravel (rendering a road

disagreeable to travel on); obstacle, stumbling-block' (Steingass, s.v.), from xar 'ass' and sang 'stone': hersek(?anakkale) 'stony country, stony field' (DD 2.722). The Turkish recordis isolated, thereforethe etymology has to be regarded as tentative in spite of the good phonological and semantical agreement. 62. xdcdk 'chips, leaves, sprigs, shoots, suckers, young grass, small bits of wood, shavings, parings, or refuse of any kind; also dust, motes, straws, or anything similar which gets into the eye or liquors; rubbish, siftings' (Steingass, s.v.), a derivative of xds 'rubbish, chips, etc.': hasak (Bursa: muhacir) 'rubbish, chips, crumbs, filth mixed with dirt and
dust' (DD 2.707).

There is only this single record for the Anatolian variant, and we are not told where the immigrant (muhacir)had come from. 63. xaygina, xagina 'a fried egg' (Steingass, s.v.), 'scrambled eggs, also omelet' (Haim, s.v.), a derivative of xdya "egg": kaygmna (Denizli), kaygana (Adana, Izmir; Tiirkmen agzl; Avsar agzl), gaygana (Gaziantep) 'dessert consisting of a kind of bread or cake soaked in syrup' (DD
GazAgzi 3.309), with the diminutive derivative kayganaczk(Sivas) 'a kind of beets' (DD 4.I683). 2.856, AD

The variants with -a- as second vowel are widely spread; the variant kaygana is known in Istanbul as 'omelette'. Standard Azerbaijani has gayyanag 'fried eggs'. 64. xist 'a javelin, dart, spear, halberd, pole-axe' (Steingass, s.v.), Old. Pers. arsti-, with Kurd. xyst (xist) 'wedge, blade; bayonet; javelin; mace' (Kurdoev 373), Georg. xigti 'bayonet': xzst (Malatya), hzst (Erzincan, Kars), hist (Erzincan) 'dagger; iron rod with sharp point (especially, the kind used by dervishes for self-infliction of wounds); fishingspear' (DD 2.733, 737, AD I.I70).

Standard Azerbaijani has kdbin 'wedding ceremony'; in Literary Ottoman kdbinis 'bride-money'(recordsof kebin 'bride-money;marriage ceremony' from sources of the I4th to I6th centuries are found in TTS
1.440, 3.429).

70. kafs 'a shoe, sandal, slipper, high-heeled and shod with iron' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. kafs, with Kurd. k'dws (kews)id. (Kurdoev 435): kevis (I1el) 'boot, shoe' (DD 4.I690).

'boot' and -gar 'maker of': kosker(Antalya, Amasya, Isparta, Kayseri,Ankara, Nigde, Afyon, Maras, Seyhan, Qankirl,Klrsehir,Izmir, Konya, Gaziantep,Tokat, Sivat) 'shoemaker, cobbler', with the derivatives k6skerce(Maras)'a shoe resembling a slipper' and, with over-characterization,koskiircii(Burdur) 'cobbler',

Standard Ottoman kerkenez'hawk; kind of vulture' with the Anatolian variants kelkerez(Kayseri, Elazlg), kelkenez(Kayseri), kelkekez (Gaziantep),and kerkenek (recordnot located) id. (DD 4.1686, AD 1.223, 2.87, GazAgzi 3.444) seem to go back to another variant of the Persian etymon. Standard Azerbaijanikdrkingdk'small hawk', to which belongs the Anatolian variant kerkencik(Bilecik) 'a kind of hawk' (DD 2.883), possibly can be related to the same type. 76. kaskdb,ka?kdv, 'barley-water, barley-broth; a ptisan' (Steingass, s.v.), from ka?k 'barley' etc., (see the following paragraph), and db 'water': keskef (Klrsehir) 'a dish made of pounded wheat, baked in the oven' (DD 2.889 f.). 77. kaskak 'barley or wheat, especially boiled whole with meat till

In Standard Azerbaijanithe term is mirab. 87. muft 'gratuitously, without payment, gratis' (Steingass, s.v.), with Kurd. moft (muft) id.

I395, AD 1.39I, 2.132, Dogull 25, 282). The hapax tale (Bursa: muhacir) 'pup' (DD 3.I307) may be an erroneous recording.

Standard Azerbaijani has tula 'dog'. 123. tin 'the stove of a bath' (Steingass, s.v.), Pahl. tin with Kurd. t'un (tOn) 'cave; stove, oven; furnace' (Kurdoev 770), cf. Georg. t'uni 'kiln': tun (Afyon) 'the opening of an oven; the surface, upper part of an

Although the term ydren 'friends, companion' is obsolete in modernStandard Ottoman, the derivative ydrenlik'friendly chat, joking conversation' and the expression ydrenlik etmek 'to engage in friendly chat, to have a joking conversation' are common. Literary Ottoman ydrdn'friends'is borrowedfrom Pers. yardnid., the pluralof yar. 127. ydva 'lost, ruined; vain, foolish, futile, absurd, stupid; men or things whose origin is not known; fictions, foolish expressions' (Steingass, s.v.): yava (Konya, Ankara), yavu (Sinop, Ordu) 'lost (cattle),

Standard Ottoman has ydve 'foolish talk'. Old Ottoman had the expression yavu kzlmak 'to lose' and yavu varmak 'to be lost' (records, mostly from the I4th-I6th centuries, are found in TTS, vols. I-4, s.vv.). I28. zdy 'a crow, raven, rook; a sort of pidgeon' (Steingass, s.v.): zag, in the compound karazag (Giimiisane, Gaziantep) 'black crow, raven; a kind of small bird' (DD 4.I680).

I33. zardak 'a carrot', from zard 'yellow' and the diminutive suffix -ak: zerdek (Bursa) 'carrot' (DD 3.I57I). I34. zarin-qadah 'a white and yellow narcissus' (Steingass, s v.), from

zarin 'golden' and qadah (borrowedfrom Arab. qadah id.) 'cup, goblet': zerengade(Kocaeli) 'narcissus' (DD 3.I57I). The word is listed as zerfnkadeh in some Standard Ottoman dictionaries (Redhouse also lists the
vulgar variants zerenkada, zeremkada), and through Ottoman the term has entered some of the Balkan languages (Mod. Gr. epvaxoc?S, Serbo-

Croat. zelenkada,Roum. zarnacadea;for the latter cf. Lokotsch no. 2204,

with a different derivation). I35. zihgfr 'a ring, generally of bone, worn by archers on the thumb,

to save it from being cut by the bow-string, a thumb-stall' (Steingass, s.v.), from zih 'bowstring' and the verbal element -gir 'seizing, keeping, holding': zikir (Seyhan), zekir (Bursa: muhacir), zeykir (Ankara, Nigde, Eskisehir, Malatya, Maras, Gaziantep) 'kind of finger-ring; finger-ring with stone, broad finger-ring worn by women on thumb' (DD 3.I570,
1573, 1582, AD I.435, GiineyDogu 315); zifkiir (Tekirdag: muhacir) 'thimble' (DD 3.I589). Although obsolete today, the term was known in

older Standard Ottoman; in the I7th century (cf. Meninski, s.v.) the vulgar form zekir 'thumb-stall' is recorded. This form was borrowed by
by Serbo-Croatian, where it has become zecir 'finger-ring'. 136. zzr-i zamin, zer-zamin 'an underground cellar or cave' (Steingass, s.v.), from zzr, zer 'under, below' and zam[n 'ground, land, soil', with Kurd. zerazdmin (zerezemin) (Kurdoev 809), also zerdzami (cf. Jabajusti,

s.v. zdmin) 'cellar, basement': zerzemi(Nigde, Kars, Istanbul), zerzembi, zerzenbi,zelzemi, yerzem, erzem (Kayseri), zerzembe(Erzurum), zerzama (Gaziantep),zerzamba(Maras,Gaziantep), zerzene(1eel), zergeni(Konya), zelzeme,zenbine, zelzem (Seyhan), zerzem(Seyhan, Afyon), and the derivative zemlik (Bursa), 'cellar, basement; dark underground store-room
for food; coal-cellar' (DD 2.548, 3.I520, I570, I571, I572, AD 1.435, DoguIl 287, GiineyDogu 215, 315, GazAgzl 3.782); zerzemi (Kayseri) 'kitchen' (DD 3.I572). Semantically not clear is zerzemi (Giresun) 'landslide, cave-in' (DD 3.I572).

Standard Azerbaijani has zirzdmi 'cellar, basement'. The Kurdish, Azerbaijani, and Anatolian borrowings without final -n have to be derived from a Persian variant formed with zamz (cf. Steingass, s.v.), a variant of zammn.
