The object of analysis are several words of Proto-Bulgarian origin in modern German. Taking into consideration the results of some recent Turkic studies and personal observations, the following words are reckoned by the author among words of Proto-Bulgarian origin in German: Pеtsсhaft, Dоlmetsсh, the ore-mining term Hund, Säbel, Husar, Kummet. The penetration of these words into German was not the result of direct contacts, but came through Slavonic and Hungarian. Thus, they are the echo of the influence once exercised by the Proto-Bulgarians on the neighbouring Slavs and Magyars.
