EtymologyEdit

From Ottoman Turkish طاقمق(takmak), داقمق(dakmak, to put, affix, attach, append), from Proto-Turkic *dAk-(to bind to, add to),[1] which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *tàk`u(to attach, touch, reach).[2] From 17th century onwards /t/ was preferred over /d/ due to unvoiced final /k/.[3]
