"one of the closest languages to Old Turkic"[edit]

The fact that Khalaj preserves some archaic features does not mean that it is one of the closest modern languages to Old Turkic. This is like the case of Modern South Arabian which is not closer to Proto-Semitic in contrast to Standard Arabic, although it preserves several archaic features and Arabic does not. You also have to define Old Turkic; If you refer to the language of the Gokturks, that language is closest to the language of the Uyghurs, if one overlooks heavy Arabic and Persian influence (Which is by the way much stronger in Khalaj).حضرت محمود (talk) 13:45, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Kalaj doesn't mean stay hungry[edit]

"Kal aç" has two meanings. One is stay hungry (but there is a grammatical error in there, it should've been "aç kal" if it meant to say stay hungry). The other, and the true, meaning is stay and open. I can assure you that second one is true. I read it in Oghuz Khan legend. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.171.189.4 (talk) 15:09, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
