Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bằka
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to look, watch
Russian meaning: смотреть
Turkic: *bạk-
Tungus-Manchu: *baKa-
Korean: *pò-
Japanese: *bàkàr-
Comments: The root should be distinguished from *pḗk`o q. v. The etymology in SKE 204, linking the Kor. form with the Jpn. and TM accusative marker, is hardly credible. Kor. has a "verbal" low tone.
