EtymologyEdit

Recorded during Ottoman Turkish صلاق(salak, penis exposer; penis; a kind of weapon with balls), derived from Ottoman Turkish صالمق(sal-, to release, free, throw). See Turkish salmak. Nişanyan thinks the word went through semantic extension perhaps under now Turkish slang saloz (stupid), a borrowing from Greek σαλός (salós, fool).[1]
