Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *č`i̯ṑk`e ( ~ -k-)
Meaning: grass, weed
Russian meaning: трава, сорняк
Turkic: *čekin
Tungus-Manchu: *čūKa
Korean: *soksăi
Japanese: *tùkúsi
Comments: Mong. čike-n in names of plants may be a merger of this root and *č`ĭk`a q. v. Kor. soksăi 'horse-tail' is hard to separate from Jpn. tukusi id.; most probably we are dealing with an assimilation here (soksăi < *čoksăi).
