Etymology[edit]

From a Mongolic source, compare Mongolian улс (uls, state, country), from Old Turkic [script needed] (uluş, country, city) which is likely related to Old Turkic [script needed] (ülüş, lot, endowment),[1] therefore from Proto-Turkic *üle- (to divide, distribute, endow),[2] see more at üleş and üleşmek.
