Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to wink
Russian meaning: мигать
Turkic: *kirm- / *Kɨrm-
Tungus-Manchu: *korim- / *kirim-
Comments: A Turk.-TM isogloss; cf. *kumi. Doerfer (MT 240) tries to refute the comparison (by deriving the Turk. forms from kirpi "hedgehog" and the TM forms from kiri- "to glitter") - quite unconvincingly.
