Etymologies

From Ukrainian ковбаса (kovbasá, "sausage"), a very early Slavic borrowing with no clear antecedent. The Slavic variants point to several reconstructed forms from Proto-Slavic *kъlbasa, *klobasa, *kobasa. It is considered most likely to be borrowed from Turkic language; compare Turkish külbastı ("roasted meat"), from kül ("ash"), from Old Turkic (Uyghuric) kül, from Proto-Turkic *kül (“ashes”). (Wiktionary)

Examples

  • As for the meat issue, I used to be pretty veggie-friendly, but being pregnant brings out the carnivore in me and I just can't help but eat a ring of kubasa as a snack.
