Number: 312
Root: bhū̆ĝo-s, Koseform bhukko-s
English meaning: goat
German meaning: `Bock'
Grammatical comments: (fem. auf `Ziege')
Material: Zigeun. buzni `Ziege'; av. būza m. `Ziegenbock', npers. buz `Ziege, Bock';

    arm. buz `Lamm';

    mir. bocc, pocc, nir. boc, poc, cymr. bwch, corn. boch, bret. bouc'h `Bock', dazu mir. boccānach `Gespenst';

    germ. *bukka- (nach Pedersen Litteris 7, 23 f. aus dem Kelt. entlehnt?) in aisl. bukkr, bokkr, bokki, ags. bucca, nengl. buck, ahd. mhd. boc, -ekes, nhd. Bock.

    Das im Konsonantismus abweichende ai. bukka-ḥ `Ziegenbock' (unbelegt) ist wohl von bukkati `bellt' (s. unter beu-1, bu-) beeinflußte hypochoristische Umbildung eines *bhūja- =av. būza-. Auch npers. dial. boča `junge Ziege', pām. buč, büč scheinen Ergebnis ähnlicher Umbildung zu sein.

Comments: EDT 317-318, ЭСТЯ 2, 235-238, Лексика 152, Лексика 446-447, Stachowski 67. Turk. bugura > Mong. buɣura (see TMN 2, 296, Щербак 1997, 110). Щербак 1997, 201 considers Turkic *bugu to be borrowed from Mongolian buɣu 'male deer' (which may be true for some Kypchak forms: Kirgh. buɣu, Kaz. bŭɣɨ, Nogh., KKalp. buɣɨ), but in fact one can also think of a loan in the opposite direction: Turk. > Mong. buɣu (KW 58, MGCD 166), further > Evk. buɣu etc., see Doerfer MT 78. Turk. > Russ. Siber. burá 'female camel'; Mong. (Bur.) būra > Russ. Siber. búra id., see Аникин 142.
