Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

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

Pronunciation[edit]

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

Noun[edit]

kaya ‎(definite accusative kayayı, plural kayalar)

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