Proto-Altaic: *gijo
Meaning: notch, to cut aslant
Russian meaning: зарубка, резать наискосок
Turkic: *Kɨj-
Tungus-Manchu: *gia-
Japanese: *ki
Comments: Kalm. kāčǝ- (WMong. kijači-, KW 222) 'to split (wood)' is probably borrowed from the Turk. derivative *Kɨjgač- (although the latter now means basically 'slant', the original meaning was 'cut aslant'). If the latter was the original meaning in PA, one could also compare Mong. *geji-, *geje- 'slanting, oblique' (otherwise see notes to *k`i̯úŋ(k)u).

Comments: VEWT 261, ЭСТЯ 6, 197-200. Turk. *kɨjgač > Kalm. kīɣǝs (KW 234). The meaning of the Orkh. hapax qɨd- (see EDT 595) is quite insecure and cannot serve as a basis for reconstructing *Kɨd-; all other forms (including qɨj- 'to cut aslant' and qɨj-ma 'cut meat' in MK) point unambiguously to *Kɨj-, see ЭСТЯ 6, 200, 202-203. There exist also common Turkic derivatives *Kɨj-ɨr and *Kɨj-ɨk 'oblique, bent'.
