Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: red
Russian meaning: красный
Mongolian: *hulaɣan
Tungus-Manchu: *pula-
Korean: *pɨ̀rk-
Comments: AKE 14, Lee 1958, 110, EAS 53, 143, KW 448, Poppe 12, 74, Цинциус 1984, 54, Menges 1984, 287, АПиПЯЯ 40, 291, Rozycki 80-81. Despite Poppe 1972, 100, Doerfer MT 23, TM cannot be borrowed from Mong (and vice versa, as suggested in TMN 1, 540); borrowing in Kor. from TM is also highly improbable.
