Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *bằŕ[i]
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: wide, thick
Russian meaning: широкий, толстый
Turkic: *bAŕɨk
Mongolian: *bar-
Tungus-Manchu: *baru-n
Korean: *pắr
Japanese: *pìrǝ̀-
Comments: Whitman 1985, 193, 210 (Kor.-Jpn.). The vowel reflex in Korean is irregular, which leaves a possibility of Kor. *pắr and Jpn. *pìrǝ̀ 'fathom' going back to a different root (reconstructable as *Piari or *Piali); the coincidence of *pìrǝ̀ 'fathom' and *pìrǝ̀- 'wide, broad' in Jpn. must be in that case secondary.
