Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *gi̯aŋu
Meaning: wild onion
Russian meaning: дикий лук
Turkic: *gEmürgen
Tungus-Manchu: *guŋur
Japanese: *k(u)i
Comments: Cf. also some similar roots: *gokV, *ki̯omga, *k`éma (with possible mergers). Medial -m- in Turk. may be either due to these mergers, or a result of labial assimilation (*gEmürgen < *gEŋürgen). The Jpn. form must go back to a suffixed *gi̯aŋ(u)-gV.
