Proto: *čarkke
> Nostratic: > Nostratic
English meaning: fork
German meaning: Gabel, Dragge
Finnish: harkki 'Dragge', (SKES) harkki- 1. 'harata, naarata; eggen, rechen, nach etw. dreggen, fischen', 2. 'pohtia, ajatella, miettiä; etw. erörtern, denken, sinnen', harkitse-'überlegen, erwägen, ausdenken, über etw. nachdenken' ?
Estonian: hark (Gen. hargi) 'Gabel, Ofengabel, Mistgabel'
Mordovian: čarkod́e-, čarkud́e-, čaŕkod́e-, čaŕkud́e- (E), M šäŔked́e- 'einsehen, vernehmen, verstehen, begreifen, erraten'
K. Redei's notes: Mord. d'e ist ein Verbalsuffix. Zum Bedeutungsverhältnis finn. 'Dragge' - 'eggen, rechen, dreggen' - 'nach etw. mit einer Dragge, Gabel fischen' - > 'überlegen, denken, sinnen' vgl. finn. keksi 'Bootshaken' ~ 'etw. mit dem Bootshaken fühlen, tasten, suchen' -> keksi- 'erfinden, entdecken, sich ausdenken', tutka 'Spitze'- tutki- 'etw. mit einer spitzigen Stange fühlen, tasten, suchen' -> 'untersuchen, recherchieren, prüfen, erforschen'. Die Zusammenstellung ist nur dann akzeptabel, wenn die abstrakte Bedeutung im Mord. - ähnlich wie in den ostseefinnischen Sprachen - aus der konkreten Bedeutung 'Gabel' entstanden ist.
Addenda: Liv. (Kett.) ar̄kk, är̄k̀ 'Gabel unter dem Wagen'
