Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish قیا(kaya), قایا(kaya, rock), from Proto-Turkic *k(i)aya (rock, mountain).[1] Akin to Proto-Mongolic *kada (rock) (Mongolian хад (khad, large rock, cliff)) and Proto-Tungusic *kada(r) (rock) (Evenki кадага (kadaga, rock, cliff)), however Old Turkic -y- instead of the expected -d- is baffling, EDAL suggests Old Turkic [script needed] (kaya, rock) is perhaps a borrowing from some archaic "y-dialect"[2] such as Oghuz, Karluk and Kipchak languages where regular d→δ→y evolution took place. Helimski (1995)[3] suggests a borrowing from Proto-Samoyedic *koəjə (mountain).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [kaˈja]
  • Hyphenation: ka‧ya

Noun[edit]

kaya (definite accusative kayayı, plural kayalar)

  1. huge rock; large rock mass
  2. rock cliff, rock precipice, palisade
