EtymologyEdit

From Ukrainian ковбаса ‎(kovbasá, sausage), a very early Slavic borrowing with no clear antecedent. The Slavic variants point to several reconstructed forms from Proto-Slavic *kъlbasa, *klobasa, *kobasa. It is considered most likely to be borrowed from Turkic language; compare Turkish külbastı ‎(roasted meat), from kül ‎(ash), from Old Turkic kül, from Proto-Turkic *kül ‎(ashes).
