Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ắsi
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to cut; piece
Russian meaning: отрезать; кусок
Turkic: *kes-
Mongolian: *kasu-
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)asu-
Korean: *kàsk- / kǝ̀sk-
Japanese: *kínsú
Comments: SKE 103 (Turk.-Kor.; despite TMN 3, 596, Kor. kǝsk- is not a "teleologischer Sternchenform"). Cf. also Nan. (Bik.) kesi- 'to cut out' - with quite inexplicable k- (a borrowing?). Reasons for prenasalization in Jpn. are unclear (perhaps a suffixed form like *k`ắsi-gu-n is reflected).
