Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bùjre
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: wrong, bad
Russian meaning: неправильный, плохой
Mongolian: *buruɣu
Korean: *ōi-
Japanese: *bàrǝ̀-
Comments: In TM cf. perhaps Evn. bēruw- 'to slander' (ТМС 1, 127). Medial *-j- should be reconstructed to account for the loss of *-r- in Korean; the Korean word may belong here if it is another case of *b- > 0-, like in úrí 'we' < *bĭ̀-ŕV, ì- 'to be' < *bíju, ù- 'well' < *bi̯ujri, ùsɨ̀rk 'badger' < *borso-k`V.
