Brent Kennedy, "Many words - of which only a few appear below - indicate Turkish or Ottoman origins. The Ottoman Empire at that time included Turkey, Egypt, Syria, most of North Africa, and the Balkans - Serbia, Croatia, and Bosnia. Many of the words are old Ottoman, as opposed to modern Turkish, adding even more credence to the similarities."
