Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish اوتورمق(oturmak, to sit, incubate, live, remain), from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed](otur-, to sit), from Proto-Turkic *ol-ur-, *ol(u)-tur-(to sit),[1] causative form of Proto-Turkic *ol(u)-, which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *ṑlu(to be, become; to come).[2] Proto-Turkic *ol(u)-'s relation to Karakhanid [script needed](olmāk, to be, become ripe), and Turkish olmak(to be, become, happen, exist, be situated) is not clear, at least the Turkish form is thought to be from Proto-Turkic *bōl-(to become). The -/l/- in -/lt/- cluster was lost, compare a similar case in getir- (<*gẹl-tür-).
