Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *t`ók`ù ( ~ -k-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to hit, knock, beat
Russian meaning: бить, стучать, ударять
Turkic: *tokɨ-
Mongolian: *togsi-
Tungus-Manchu: *tokta-
Korean: *thí-
Japanese: *túk-
Comments: KW 398. There may have existed an expressive variant with *t- (cf. some Turkic forms, Mong. doki-ɣur 'drumstick', doki- 'to hit, knock down' (KW 93), Evk. (May.) dokto- 'to hit, chop'); see Дыбо 13. The root is of course expressive (see TMN 2, 460), but seems reconstructable for PA, and distinguishable from *tŭ̀gì 'to pound'.
