Word: сыро́й,
Near etymology: укр. сири́й, блр. сыры́, др.-русск. сыръ "сырой, влажный", цслав. сыръ ὑγρός, словен. sirọ̑v, ж. -о̣̑vа "сырой, невареный, грубый", чеш. syrý "сырой", в.-луж., н.-луж. sуrу.
Further etymology: Родственно *sуrъ, далее -- лит. sū́ras "соленый", лтш. sũrs "соленый, горький, терпкий", др.-исл. súrr "кислый, неприятный", др.-датск. также "сырой, наполовину сгнивший", шв. sur vеd "сырое дерево", д.-в.-н. sûr "кислый"; см. Траутман, ВSW 293 и сл.; Хольтхаузен, Awn. Wb. 289. Сюда же относят в качестве стар. и.-е. названия Συράκουσαι, ион. Συρήκουσαι мн., производное на -nt- от *Συρακώ -- название болота (Кречмер, "Glotta", 14, 98). Подробнее см. суро́вый. Не является более вероятным, чем изложенное, сопоставление с лит. šiūrùs vė́jas "пронзительный, резкий ветер", šiurkštùs "неровный, шероховатый", šiáurė "север" (Буга, РФВ 67, 245; 75, 148).

Comments: Владимирцов 258, АПиПЯЯ 13, 19, 49-50, 70, 285, Дыбо 11. Mong. dabu-su regularly < *dabur-su; borrowing in Mong. < Turk. is absolutely improbable, despite Щербак 1997, 160. The Turk.-Mong. parallel is an old etymology (starting with Pelliot 1935, 231) which Doerfer (TMN 2, 510-511) tries in vain to refute. A small problem is the preservation of *-b- (one should rather expect *daɣu(r)-sun in Mong.), which should be probably explained by an old assimilation *či̯obeŕV- > *či̯opeŕV in pre-PM. For Jpn. one has to assume a rather universal semantic change 'bitter' > 'hard, unbearable'. Cf. perhaps also MKor. čùijǝ̀mí 'vinegar dregs'.
