Found inDickson, P. Labels for locals, 2006 (Turkmenistan: Turkmen, pluralized Turkmens. Turkmen comes from Persian, and is also an adjective. Turkoman (or Turcoman) denotes the same ethnic group, as a noun (pluralized Turkomans or Turcomans) or adjective. There is some evidence of Turkmenistani as a national adjective, but whether it will emerge as a useful demonym remains to be seen. Because Turkmens live in several different countries besides Turkmenistan, the ethnic significance of the word should be kept in mind.)
