  • the Moguls spoke Urdu and Persian, not a Turkic language. I contend that the Hindi vocab went in line from Arabic to Urdu-Farsi to Hindi, and there's a parallel line from Arabic to Turkish to Bosnian.

    and yarb--it seems that masculine hair-colour nouns are atrophying altogether; one never hears a man called a blond or redhead nowadays, as if having hair colour were suddenly a feminine property!

  • Excellent. It's always bothered me that brunette is applied to anyone whose hair isn't blond(e) or red - and that there's no male equivalent (brunet??)

  • I expect the Hindi word you mention has the same Turkic origins, via the Moguls.

  • oh DUH. my Turkish is so rotten.

  • Doesn't kara mean black in Turkish? (The Serbian nationalist leader who led the first Serbian revolt against the Turks and founded modern Serbia's royal dynasty was called "Karadjordje" – "Black George".) Perhaps that is the origin of the word. I don't think it's Slavic.

  • a girl with black hair and black eyes, and I mean BLACK--not brunette. the word has some connection to the Hindi 'kaare' meaning "black" or "kohl-rimmed". I like this world because it fills in the incomplete English paradigm. "Gara" is the true opposite of a blonde.
