Word history[edit]

I would dispute that the word originates in Russian. Russian is younger than Turkish. It has a lot of resemblance with the Norwegian word jord, and the Kyrgyz, Kazakh, Finish and Saami word jurta —This unsigned comment was added by Ivarmagneauestad (talkcontribs) at 14:25, 19 April 2011.

That is the etymology provided by the OED, though. Note that English words need not necessarily be derived from older languages. — SMUconlaw (talk) 14:40, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
