Comments: ТМС 1, 82, 108. The vocalism is not quite clear because of the doublets with -i- and -u- (due to interdialectal borrowing and perhaps also Mongolian influence, see below).

Proto-Altaic: *bi̯ŭ̀lò
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to soak, gush forth
Russian meaning: мокнуть, мочить, бить ключом
Turkic: *bulak
Mongolian: *bul(ka)-, *bilka-
Tungus-Manchu: *b[ü]lkü-
Korean: *purɨ- ( ~ -ɨ-)
Japanese: *pùrǝ̀ ( ~ -ua)
Comments: ТМС 1, 108 (TM-Mong.). An expressive root with difficult reconstruction. The two variants in Mong. and TM are probably due to interdialectal borrowing, but direct borrowing from Mong. into TM is hard to justify: the meanings are not in mutual correlation (Mong. bilka- is 'overflow', while bilki- in TM is 'to wet, moisten'; Mong. bulka- is 'to dip, rinse', while TM bulku- is 'to splash'). The Korean reflex is not quite certain (Martin KED 836 considers pulli- to be a factitive of pūd- 'swell' - which is, however, somewhat questionable).
