Borrowed from Ottoman Turkish آقچه (akça, akçe) (compare Turkish akçe).


akçe (plural akçes)

  1. A silver coin minted during the Ottoman Empire, valued at one-third of a para.
    • 1988, Milorad Pavić, translated by Christina Pribićević-Zorić, Dictionary of the Khazars, Vintage, published 1989, page 209:
      Worth the sum of two thousand two hundred akches, this is all a final gift to the said maiden if he fails to marry her within the appointed period of time.
    • 2011, Christine Woodhead, editor, The Ottoman World:
      The corvée is an archaic feature, absent from later statutes, but the notion that 50 akçes was the rate of compensation due for loss of tithes lingered.




Alternative forms[edit]


Inherited from Ottoman Turkish آقچه (aḳça, silver money, coin, a third part of a para, anciently a real coin of much greater value and a day's pay for a soldier, now a mere money of account),[1] from Proto-Turkic *āk (white),[2][3] morphologically ak +‎ -çe.
