Halı, the modernTurkish word for carpet or rug, was written k alı in OttomanTurkish script until late in the 19th century, as it was in classical Persian and still is in modern Persian. It was borrowed from Persian into Urdu and from Ottoman Turkish into Armenian and other Caucasian tongues and into the languages of the Balkans. Its ultimate origin is uncertain; it could be Turkish but might be Sogdian.
