From Ottoman Turkish توره‌‌‌مك (türemek, to start into existence, increase and multiply), from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] (dörü-), [script needed] (töre-, to be born, come into existence), from Proto-Turkic *töre- (to be born, originate), which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from possibly from Proto-Altaic *t`ŏ̀ri (to be born, copulate).[1] Compare Proto-Mongolic *töre- (to be born), (Mongolian төрөх (töröh)), either an Altaic cognate[1] or a Turkic borrowing.[2][1]

  1. (intransitive) to breed, increase, multiply, pullulate
  2. (intransitive, with ablative case) to descend, originate, arise, emerge, derive, be derived
