Comments: EDT 156, TMN 2, 124. Turk. > Pers. āmāǯ (see Horn 11 on the lack of Iranian etymology of the Persian word; the derivation in Bailey 326: āmāǯ < *mātač is hardly credible), despite Molnár 2001 (suggesting a different direction); but Chag. (Sangl.) amaǯ is certainly a backloan < Persian. The word is also present in Armen. mač 'plough handle', where it is most probably < Iranian.
