    [Split] External Influences in Azeri Turkish

    I wonder how many words are in azeri language that are not of iranian, turkic, arabic and of russian origin. Like words from the languages that were spoken before the influence of the above mentioned languages/cultures.

    Interesting question. I have no knowledge regarding this.

    Anyone (Caspian) know if any Caucasian languages have left any influences on the Azeri dialects spoken in the Republic (e.g. Daghestani or other NE Caucasian)? In the event that there is, I'd be surprised if it extended south of the Aras into Iranian Azerbaijan.

    I heard from my friend that words like "it" (dog) mesha (woods) and goyn (sheep) are not of turkic or iranian origin
    These words are used by Iranian Azeris aswell

    Absolutely no. it (dog) and qoyun (sheep) are Turkic words. They are even Proto-Turkic. I'm not sure for meşə, but it seems Turkic. These names are common in all Turkic languages.

    Numbers, names of animals, names of body parts, names about nature and geography etc. are common in all Turkic languages.

    mesha is Iranic, Persian specifically:

    Modern Persian bīşa/mīşa بيشه woods, forest << Middle Persian vēşag a.a.

    There are some words that derived from Armenian language in Azerbaijani Turkish. However, I don't know and I didn't hear any word that is from Caucasian languages in Azerbaijani Turkish.

    Note: Meşə (Meşe) is derived from Persian according to Sevan Nişanyan.

    I found a word that are not of Turkic, Arabic or Iranic origin. It is çay (tea) that derived from Sino-Tibetan languages. It is common in Azerbaijani and Anatolian Turkish.
