Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ŋ[i̯u]
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: three, thirty
Russian meaning: три, тридцать
Turkic: *otuŕ
Mongolian: *gu-
Japanese: *mi-
Comments: ? Cf. also Turk. *üč (*öč) 'three' (ЭСТЯ 1, 641-642, Stachowski 254). The match is somewhat problematic, basically because of the absence of the TM cognate, shortness of the root and unclear suffixation. The basic phonological correspondence pointing to PA *ŋ- is, however, observed, and the parallel seems to be worth noting.
