English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Italian oca, from French oque, from Turkish okka. The Turkish is sometimes said to be from Arabic وقية (wuqīye), but some dispute this, since the latter denotes a much smaller weight. The Arabic probably came, via Classical Syriac, from Greek ουγκιά (ounkiá), from Latin uncia (ounce, twelfth part), from unus (one).

Pronunciation[edit]
