Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *zela
Meaning: to be awake; to live
Russian meaning: бодрствовать; жить
Turkic: *jạlaŋuk
Mongolian: *sülde
Tungus-Manchu: *sele-
Korean: *sār-
Comments: The Mong. -ü-reflex is not quite clear: since -ld- is not simplified in this case, we may suspect that the original form was *süle-de, probably with usual labialization metathesis < *selü-dü, with consequent vowel reduction.
