Etymology[edit]

From Old Turkic oltur-, olur-, from Proto-Turkic *ol-ur-/*ol(u)-tur- ("to sit"). Composed of two word stems, ol- (to be, become) and -tur- (to sit, dwell), which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *ṑlu (to be, become; to come). Related to olmak.
