Etymology 2[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish صاز(saz, rush, reed), from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed](sāz),[1] from Proto-Turkic *siāŕ(marsh, dirt).[2] Compare Hungarian sár(mud), a Turkic borrowing. From an early date “reed”, as a plant growing in marshy environments, replaced the original sense, therefore صازلق(sazlık, marsh, marshy place, swamp) was also interpreted as “reed, rush bed”.[1] See Turkish sazlık(marshy place, reed bed), compare Uyghur سازلىق(sazliq, swamp), Kyrgyz саздак(sazdak, swamp), Turkmen sāzlyk(reed bed, rubbish place overgrown with plants).
