Etymology[edit]

From Ukrainian ковбаса (kovbasá, sausage), a very early Slavic borrowing with no clear antecedent. The Slavic variants point to several reconstructed forms from Proto-Slavic *kъlbasa, *klobasa, *kobasa. It is considered most likely to be borrowed from Turkic language; compare Turkish külbastı (roasted meat), from kül (ash), from Old Turkic (Uyghuric) kül, from Proto-Turkic *kül (ashes).
