Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bằtò
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of plant (for making ropes)
Russian meaning: вид растения (для изготовления веревок)
Turkic: *buta-
Tungus-Manchu: *batu-kin
Japanese: *bàtà
Comments: The root evidently denoted some k. of plant used for making ropes or yarn. Note however that the Turkic reflex is poorly attested and not quite reliable; in PTM a reconstruction *bartu-kin is also possible (and perhaps preferable). The PA form should thus perhaps be changed to *bằrtò - a Tung.-Jpn. isogloss.
