Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *máĺe

Meaning: wild cat
Russian meaning: дикий кот
Turkic: *bɨńĺ(ɨk)
Mongolian: *malur
Tungus-Manchu: *mala-
Japanese: *músásà(m)pì
Comments: In Jpn. -u- is irregular (*-ǝ- would be expected); this is probably a distortion in a long word. Turkic, as in a number of other cases, preserves here some traces of nasalization.
