Turkish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish يوریمك (yürümek, to walk, advance). In Turkish, Old Turkic and different Turkic dialects; the verb was attested in different forms alternating between back or front vowels such as yorı-, yöri-, yüri- . Clauson regards all forms together, but notes that yorı- is attested earlier. From Proto-Turkic *jorɨ-, *jüri- (to walk), which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *dōre (to go, walk, approach).[1] Altaicists compare Evenki [script needed] (dūrē-, to walk, wander), Japanese 寄る (yoru, to come up, come near), Mongolian дүрвэх (dürveh, to flee, run away in fear).
