Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *meń[o]
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: dwelling place, village
Russian meaning: жилище, деревня
Mongolian: *maji-kan
Tungus-Manchu: *mēne-
Korean: *mằńằrh
Japanese: *múrà
Comments: The Kor.-Jpn. form is a derivative in *-rV (*-lV). The Tungus form fits very well semantically, but raises some phonetic doubts: vowel length and the quality of -n- (instead *-ń-) do not correspond to other languages. Cf. perhaps Turk. (Oyr.) man 'fence' (VEWT 325). See Vovin 1993, 257.
