EtymologyEdit

From Malay kuli, from Hindi क़ुली (qulī), from Chagatai [Term?], ultimately from Proto-Turkic *kȫle (slave, servant).

Other forms occur in Bengali [script needed] (kuli) and Tamil கூலி (kūli, daily hire). Possibly also influenced by Hindi कोली (kolī, weaver; low-class).

The Mandarin word 苦力 (kǔlì), meaning "to exert one's abilities; heavy labour work" in Classical Chinese, may have been influenced by cognates of the above Hindi word in other languages and may have further influenced English.

NounEdit

kuli (plural kuli-kuli, first-person possessive kuliku, second-person possessive kulimu, third-person possessive kulinya)

  1. laborer; coolie
    • 2019 February 20, “Pernah Jadi Kuli Bangunan, Wisanggeni Kini Tekuni Melukis [Once a Construction Laborer, Wisangenni Now Draws Diligently]”, in Suara Merdeka[1], archived from the original on 6 Sept 2019:
