Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish صارسمق(sarsmak, to shake with a shock, to joggle), [script needed] (sarsamak), from Proto-Turkic [Term?]. Cognate to Karakhanid [script needed] (sarsıtmāk, to ill-use, treat harshly), [script needed] (sarsıɣlı, violent), Old Uyghur [script needed] (sarsıɣ, harsh), Azerbaijani sarsımaq (to be shaken, shocked), Chagatai [script needed] (sarsamaq, to be shaken, quiver), Turkmen sarsmak (to shudder, quiver). Clauson thinks there is no obvious semantic connection to modern Turkish, Azeri and Turkmen forms.[1]
