Etymology[edit]

From Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] (ögey), from Proto-Turkic *ögey, cognate with Turkish üvey.

In Azerbaijani, non-initial /-g-/ has evolved to /-j-/, whereas in Turkish it has evolved to /-v-/, compare Turkish dövmek vs. Azerbaijani döymək, both from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] (dögmek, to beat); Turkish sövmek vs. Azerbaiani söymək, both from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] (sögmek, to swear). Turkish üvey (step-) therefore demonstrates a regular phonological development, while the Azerbaijani term unexpectedly preserves the intervocalic /-g-/ instead of the expected /-j-/, which would yield *öyey[1].

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [œˈɡej], [œˈɡæj]
