Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish گوتورمك(götürmek, to carry, take away), from Old Turkic 𐰚𐰇𐱅𐰇𐰼(kötür-, to raise, lift), causative of 𐰚𐰇𐱅(köt, high, elevated) (compare göt(ass, buttocks)), from Proto-Turkic *göt-(to rise, to raise; high, elevated) (compare Yakut көт(köt, to fly)). Possibly from Proto-Altaic *kŏt`i(to lift, raise).[1] Cognate with Azeri götürmək(to take, pick up), Kazakh көтеру(köterw, to lift, raise), Kyrgyz көтөрүү(kötörüü, to rise), Turkmen götermek(to lift, pick up), Uyghur كۆتەرمەك(kötermek, to pick, raise), Uzbek ko'tarmoq(to rise, heighten).

Compare kaldırmak for a similar semantic change towards “to put away, take away” from “to rise”.
