TurkishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Ottoman Turkish قیا(kaya), قایا(kaya, rock), from Proto-Turkic *K(i)aja (rock, mountain).[1] Akin to Proto-Mongolic *kada (rock) (Mongolian хад (had, large rock, cliff)) and Proto-Tungusic *kada(r) (rock) (Evenki кадага (kadaɣa, rock, cliff)), however Old Turkic -j- instead of the expected -d- is baffling, EDAL suggests Old Turkic [script needed] (kaya, rock) is perhaps a borrowing from some archaic "j-dialect"[2] such as Oghuz, Karluk and Kipchak languages where regular d→δ→j evolution took place. Helimski (1995)[3] suggests a borrowing from Proto-Samoyedic *koəjə (mountain).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): [kaˈja]
  • Hyphenation: ka‧ya

NounEdit

kaya (definite accusative kayayı, plural kayalar)
