Turkish[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish يوزمك ‎(yüzmek, to swim, float), from Old Turkic [script needed] ‎(yüz-, to swim, float), from Proto-Turkic *jüŕ- ‎(to swim, float), which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *ni̯úŕe ‎(to become wet, soak).[1] Compare Japanese 濡れる ‎(nureru, to get wet), Manchu [script needed] ‎(nerembi, to swim (of animals)), Mongolian норох ‎(noroh, to soak up, get wet). According to Nişanyan it must be related to Old Turkic [script needed] ‎(yüz-, to skin, flay),[2] see Etymology 2 below.

Cognate with Azeri üzmək ‎(to swim), Bashkir йөҙөү ‎(yöðöw, to swim), Kazakh жүзу ‎(jüzw, to swim), Kyrgyz жүзүү ‎(cüzüü, to swim, float), Turkmen ýüzmek ‎(to swim, float, sail), Uyghur ئۈزمەك ‎(üzmek, to swim), Uzbek yuzmoq ‎(to swim).
