PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): [ ˈbot͡ʃaːt]
  • Hyphenation: bo‧csát
  • Rhymes: -aːt

Etymology 1Edit

First attested at the end of the 12th century. A loanword from an Oghur Turkic language before the times of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin (at the turn of the 9th and 10th centuries). Ultimately from Proto-Turkic *boĺo- (to free, liberate) which is a derivation from the adjective *boĺ (empty, free). Cognate with Turkish boşamak (to divorce, to end one's own marriage), Karakhanid بُشُوماقْ(bošūmāq, to divorce, to get loose). The ending -t is a causative suffix.[1]
