Eurasiatic: *KVmV ?
Meaning: to marry
Borean: Borean
Indo-European: *g'em-
Altaic: *gămo
Kartvelian: *kmar- 'husband'
References: Alt. *gămo with a *g- is a problem. Perhaps instead TM *gama we should compare TM *koma 'relatives, kinsmen' (see ND 888): it would change PA to *koma and make it compatible with IE and Kartv. And TM *gama could be = PIE *ǵhom- 'person' = Ur. *komV 'man, person' < PN *gVmV 'person'. Cf. ND 888 *kümV 'man, person' (comparing Kartv. *kmar-, IE *ǵhom-, Mong. kümün (probably incorrectly), TM *koma and Ur. *komV).
