Proto-TurkicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Turkic *yum- (stem for the round things). Unclear relation with Proto-Tungusic *ụmụ̄kta (egg) which comes from the Proto-Tungusic *umū- (to lay eggs). According to the Altaists, Turkic *yumurtka is from the same root as Umay Ana (“Goddess of birth”), but it was later influenced by the Turkic stem *yum-.

It exists in almost every modern Turkic language except Uyghur. The reason for the deficiency in Uyghur is that they use تۇخۇم(tuxum), which is a borrowing from an Iranic language.

NounEdit

  1. egg
