[b-hebrew] "adam" in Turkish

Does the K&B EVER cite evidence from Turkish?  (I haven't had a chance to
look, but I doubt it was part of their procedure.)

Thank you Solomon,

Arabic was my first guess but looking at K&B under )DM they listed Ug.,
Akk., Eth., Arb., Ph., ... so I thought this word might actually predate the
Islamic period in Turkish.

But you are probably right, Arabic is the most logical source.
