Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Cognate with Russian кукуру́за (kukurúza), Ukrainian кукуру́(д)з (kukurú(d)z), кукуру́(д)за (kukurú(d)za), Bulgarian кукуру́з (kukurúz), кукума́ра (kukumára), кукура́тка (kukurátka), Slovene kukuruza, kukorica, koruza, Polish kukurudza, kukurydza. German Kukuruz was borrowed from Slavic. A difficult word to ascertain the ultimate origin of.

The suggestion of a Slavic origin and a relationship to Serbo-Croatian kukurek (hellebore) and Bulgarian кукуря́к (kukurják, hellebore), Slovene kukurjav, kukurjast (curled) does not explain the word-form difficulties (-dz-). Compare Bulgarian момору́з (momorúz), моморо́з (momoróz, corn, maize), мамалига (mamaliga, hominy).

If the source were Romanian cucuruz, it should have originally had the meaning of "pine cones".

A noteworthy hypothesis for the source of "kukuru" is a word used for calling poultry for their feeding (with corn/maize).

The explanation that the term is a borrowing from Ottoman Turkish قوقوروز (kokoroz), ultimately from Albanian kokërrëz, from kokërr,[1] remains frequently cited, but derivation from Turkic kоkоrоs (corn, maize) was refuted by F. Miklošič and F. E. Korsch.
