Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish صاری ‎(sarı, yellow), from Proto-Turkic *siarɨg ‎(yellow, white).[1] Cognate to Proto-Mongolic *sira ‎(yellow) (cf. Mongolian шар ‎(šar, yellow)), Altaicists consider the Mongolic form to be a cognate to Turkic,[2] however borrowing from Turkic has also been proposed.[3] Under the controversial Altaic theory Japanese 白い ‎(shiroi, white) (< PJ *sìruà-) and Korean ‎(huin, white) (< PK *hắi-) is also compared.[2]
