Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish توكنمك(tükenmek, to come to an end, to be totally consumed), from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] (düken-), reflexive of Proto-Turkic *tüke- (to come to an end).[1] Related to Proto-Mongolic *tögüs- (to come to an end), hence Mongolian төгсөх (tögsöh, to come to an end), perhaps from language contact.[2]

Cognate with Old Turkic [script needed] (tüke-, to come to an end), Azerbaijani tükənmək (to end), Kyrgyz түгөнүү (tügönüü), Turkmen tükenmek (to be finished), Uzbek tugamoq (to end).

  1. (intransitive) to be exhausted
  2. (intransitive) to be consumed away, be used up, run out
