Proto-Altaic: *si̯óga
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: back, back skin
Russian meaning: спина, кожа на спине
Turkic: *sagrɨ
Mongolian: *sajir / *saɣari
Tungus-Manchu: *sogda-nsa
Korean: *hǝ̀-
Japanese: *sá- / *sǝ́-
Comments: KW 319, Дыбо 306, TMN 3, 225 (doubting the common origin of the Turk. and Mong. forms). Kor. hǝri was originally attributed (see PKE 54, Martin 245, АПиПЯЯ 76, 289) to PA *k`éĺe; it seems, however, that the root is just *hǝ-, and it is better to derive it from *si̯óga, both for this reason and because of an apparent lack of development *k`- > h- in Korean.
