Etymology[edit]

From Old Turkic tiregü/tirek (backing, base, support), from Old Turkic root word tire- (tighten, uphold, shore up, withstand, resist), from Proto-Turkic *dẹrek (tree, poplar), possibly from Proto-Altaic *čărikV (kind of foliage tree). S. Starostin considers an Iranian origin (دار, dâr) as quite improbable. Related to dik, doğru and direnmek.
