Although »contacts between Arabs and speakers of Turkic languages go back to the first half of the 9th century, when the Abbasid caliphs began recruiting Turks from Central Asia as Praetorian guards", and although Arabic was influenced by a Turkic dialect during the Mamluk period too (13th-16th centuries), most loans from Turkish stem from the Ottoman period, esp. the 18th-19th century. Ar balṭa is an example of these loans, the majority of which fall into the domains of »administration and government, army and war, crafts and tools, house and household, dress, and food and dishes. The influence of Turkish on Arabic in these particular categories is obviously the consequence of the presence of the Ottoman bureaucracy and army in the Arab world in particular, and of the influence of centuries-long relations on everyday life in general."1 .
