Turkish edit

Etymology edit

From Ottoman Turkishقیا(kaya), ⁧قایا(kaya, rock), from Proto-Turkic *k(i)aya (rock, mountain).[1] Possibly akin to Proto-Mongolic *kada (rock) (Mongolian хад (xad, large rock, cliff)) and Proto-Tungusic *kada(r) (rock) (Evenki кадага (kadaga, rock, cliff)), (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) however Old Turkic -y- instead of the expected -d- is baffling, EDAL suggests Old Turkic [script needed] (kaya, rock) is perhaps a borrowing from some archaic "y-dialect"[2] such as Oghuz, Karluk and Kipchak languages where regular d→δ→y evolution took place. Helimski (1995)[3] suggests a borrowing from Proto-Samoyedic *koəjə (mountain).
