Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *míŋa ( ~ -o, -u)
Meaning: large number, thousand
Russian meaning: большое число, тысяча
Turkic: *bɨŋ
Mongolian: *miŋgan
Comments: EAS 78, Владимирцов 324, Poppe 72. A Turk.-Mong. isogloss, but the Mong. form can hardly be explained as borrowed from Turkic, despite TMN 4, 33, Щербак 1997, 107. Cf. perhaps MKor. màńắn 'forty' < 'big number'?
