Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bodi ( ~ -e)
Meaning: a k. of platform
Russian meaning: вид платформы
Turkic: *böd
Tungus-Manchu: *bedu- / *budu-
Korean: *ptǝ́i (?)
Comments: Basically a Turk.-Tung. isogloss; the Kor. word may belong here if it is not derived from ptɨ́- 'to float' (q. v.). If the parallel is correct, then most TM languages have a secondary shift u > e after a labial (a very frequent phenomenon there).
