Altaic etymology :

Proto-Altaic: *agu-la
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: uninhabited place, wilderness
Russian meaning: незаселенное место, пустошь
Turkic: *aglak
Mongolian: *aɣula
Tungus-Manchu: *agulān
Comments: Poppe 58. A Western isogloss. May be derived from the root reflected in TM as *agī- 'to walk without a road', 'wilderness' (ТМС 1, 13; its borrowing from Mong. aɣui 'wide', suggested by Poppe 1972, 101, Doerfer MT 123, is highly dubious). Note that vowel length in PT *aglak is unknown; if the original meaning of the root was 'to nomadize', one is tempted to compare also PT *āgɨl 'settlement' (originally perhaps 'nomadic settlement'; see Лексика 492-493, 522-523, ЭСТЯ 1, 65-66, 83-85, TMN 2, 82-84, Stachowski 257), whence probably MMong., WMong. ajil id. ( > Evk. ail etc., see Doerfer MT 125). Not borrowed from Turkic, but rather genuine may also be WMong. ajimak 'a group of ajil's' (TMN 1, 184-185: Mong. > Khak., Tuva ajmaq (see also ЭСТЯ 1, 110), Man. ajman etc.).

Word: у́лица,
Near etymology: зау́лок, закоу́лок, переу́лок, укр. ву́лиця, блр. ву́лка -- то же, безу́льны "бездорожный" (Мi. ЕW 372), др.-русск. улица "площадь; улица; проход", улъка "переулок", сербск.-цслав. улица πλατεῖα, болг. у́лица "улица", сербохорв. у̏лица "двор, улица", словен. úlica "улица, дорога, по которой гонят скотину", чеш. ulice "улица", слвц., польск. ulica, в.-луж. wulica.
Further etymology: Праслав. *ulа родственно словам, приводимым на у́лей: греч. αὑλός "продолговатая полость, дудка", ἔναυλος м. "русло реки", αὑλών "овраг", вестфальск. ōl, аul "овраг, луг, впадина, канава", арм. uɫi (основа на -i̯о-) "дорога, путешествие"; см. Педерсен, KZ 39, 458 и сл.; Лиден, Armen. Stud. 78; Траутман, ВSW 18; Арr. Sprd. 307; Хольтхаузен, РВВ 66, 274. Другие сравнивают с греч. αὑλή "двор" (Брандт, РФВ 25, 34, Видеман, ВВ 27, 255, Мерингер, Zschr. österr. Gymn., 1903, Шрадер -- Неринг 2, 494, Горяев, ЭС 387), которое нельзя отделять от греч. αὖλις ж. "стоянка", ἄγραυλος "находящийся, ночующий в поле, сельский" и ἰαύω "сплю" и которое, таким образом, остается в стороне; см. Буазак 100 и сл.; Гофман, Gr. Wb. 28.
