Pronunciation needed[edit]

How do you pronounce this word?

  • like "Cash" and add a "k" at the end: Cash-k , it should sound like "Cashew" but with a "k" instead of the "ew"
  • cash is true but e have to be closed e. You can open google translate and type "keşg" in turkish and listen. It is equal.. --58.213.51.39 (talk) 06:40, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Alans etc.[edit]

Text currently reads:

Kashk was already mentioned in the Persian epic Shah-nama and it survives to this day as such and beyond Iran's borders in the form of the kishk of the Lebanon, Russian kasha and gachas of Spain, country in which it was introduced by the Alans in the Early Middle Ages.
The History of the Alans in the West: from their first appearance in the sources of classical antiquity through the early Middle Ages - Bernard S. Bachrach, University of Minnesota Press, 1973

I can't find any reference to kashk, kishk, kashi, kasha, or gachas in the Alans book -- could you please provide exact page-number references? Thanks, --Macrakis (talk) 16:12, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

I can't get hold of it right now :) please bear with me for another week or so until I'll to check the print edition of that book. In the meanwhile, I discovered the Alanian term for 'porridge' and which is, perhaps not unexpectedly... kas. (see reference). (Funnily enough, the Alanian for hay is huvaz, which sends to the Slavic name of Avena sativa and which is Овёс (Oviez))

P.S Until I get the confirmation we can temporarily remove the Alan(ic) connection of gachas. Yet I am intrigued by its etymology. Do you know where we could check its etymology? It does not seem to have a Latin origin. Apostolos Margaritis (talk) 18:19, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Anthony Bryer - 'The Bizantine Porridge'[edit]

Bryer article is great -- we need to use it more

Oh yes Macrakis, it's really great, am I not bright since it was me who spotted it in the first place? :) So it's quite a shame that you edited his pointing out at the kinship between kashk and kasha etc. Hopefully this is only a temporary cleansing out 'cause the required references are on their way. Apostolos Margaritis (talk) 06:41, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Joke apart, you are quite right in having sheared it, better keep it simple... Anyway, why don't you come over to gachas and have a say as to my last contribution to that article? Apostolos Margaritis (talk) 06:52, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Tarhana, Bizantine Porridge is different than kashk(qurut). Tarhana(Bizantine Porridge) can be have some spices inside but kashk(qurut) is just have plain greek yoghurt. --58.213.51.39 (talk) 06:44, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Merge Proposal[edit]

What about the Uyghurs of China's western Xinjiang province?[edit]

The Uyghurs are a Turkic people. Do they also have "kashk" or something similar? — Hippietrail (talk) 03:33, 10 April 2018 (UTC)
