Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *tū́jk`ú
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to make a sign
Russian meaning: делать знак
Turkic: *Tūkrag
Mongolian: *doki-
Tungus-Manchu: *duKū-
Korean: *tjǝk-
Japanese: *túnká-
Comments: All meanings are well explainable from the original 'make, produce a sign'; the diphthong -jǝ- in Korean is somewhat unexpected and makes us reconstruct PA *tū́jk`ú (otherwise *tū́k`u would serve just as well).
