Summary/Abstract: The author is aiming to interpret the historical connection between Old Russian kamka and Old Novgorodian õàìú ‘textile of silk damask’. She comes to the conclusion that the former is a borrowing from East Old Turkic qamqï, while the latter is a loan from West Old Turkic χamï. Both Old Turkic words are of Chinese origin.
