Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish طوكمق ‎(doŋmak, to freeze, become ice, solidify, become rigid, be frozen to death), from Proto-Turkic *doŋ- ‎(to freeze).[1] Related to Proto-Turkic *doŋ ‎(cold, frost) (for which see don). Possibly also related to Proto-Mongolic *daɣara- ‎(to freeze) and Proto-Tungusic *doŋota ‎(cold, frost). Compare Mongolian даарах ‎(daarah, to freeze up), Evenki доӈото ‎(frost). Perhaps from a common source or a result of language contacts.[2]
