Meaning: round
Russian meaning: круглый
Turkic: *bōn-čok
Mongolian: *möɣer
Tungus-Manchu: *muŋu-, *muŋbu-

Comments: OJ mapa-r- 'turn round' may belong here if it goes back to < *moŋ-bV (cf. Tungus forms), although the vocalism is not quite right; cf. also Mong. (dissimilation?) bömbüger 'round', see EAS 116.
