    The list is not complete. For example in turkish words some words missed:
    bosh, , crimson,yataghan

    In Farsi: chemistry (from kimiya: a substance that convert other elements into gold)

    In Turki father is Ata or Dada and mother is ana or nana.
    It looks that (dad and nanny) originated from these Turkish words.
