Turco-Tocharica and Turco-Sacica renewed
(45th Meeting of the PIAC, Budapest 2002)
There the well-known hypotheses about loan-words from Saka and Tokharian in Turkic and reverse will be reconsidered and some new borrowings in all six directions are proposed. The main consideration is aimed to a formally limited class of examples: that is, to the hapaxes (or rather words without any Turkic etymologies) by Mahmud Kashgari and in Old Uygur secular textes from Turfan. These are the words that have the best chance to appear loanwords.
