Then I will say that it's a borrowing! What a lucky thing; and the T.
emerge from the Black Sea, don't they? I'd like some other Hungarian
words. Perhaps some Bulgarian and Romanian ones as well. The T. also
have a ghostly monstrous dog called the kohs-koklima, the "monkey dog"
that eats children and climbs trees and hoots like a monkey.
