Yes, it is. And just for the record, we never say "the Halloween."

Yes, indeed. Hallow or hallowed is an old word for "holy," and "een" is short for "evening."

Now, I'm waiting for you to tell us how those words derive from Bashkir, because I'm sure they do.

Haha, you walked right into that one!


I just happened to find this, as a Googled "Bashkirs". It turns out that for a Turkic people, you folks are more Indo-European than the Lithuanians, who are about 40% N1. You guys are only about 20% N1. You're nearly 1/2 west European (R1b), over 1/4 Indo-Iranian (R1a, the Scythian marker), and only 1/5 Uralic (N1, the Reindeerherder gene). Plus a mix of a variety of other types.

Sanskrit word हरि (hari) [yellow] comes from Bashkir word (south-eastern dialect) "hары" (hari) [yellow].

I apologize. I’m a poor man and yet I can’t attend this forum.
Read more about Bashkirs. Bashkir uprisings.

Mäi/mai is something that comes with conjugation, some words with the superlative suffix -inen. Like turhamainen (superficial) and halpamainen (dirty - as in 'under the belt').

Tatar-Bashkurt Plaque

Description:
This plaque is dedicated to the memory of Tatars & Bashkurts who lost their lives in the long struggle for a free nationhood, and for those who were forced to leave their country as a direct result of the policies of Russian imperialism and communism. God bless their souls.
