Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *čágo
Meaning: a k. of small predator
Russian meaning: вид мелкого хищника
Turkic: *ToK- (?)
Mongolian: *ǯeɣe-ken
Tungus-Manchu: *ǯagari
Comments: A Western isogloss. Initial ǯ- in Mong. is irregular (one should expect either *deɣe-ken or *čiɣe-ken: cf. in this respect the interesting WMong. form čöge-büri ( < *čiɣö-büri ?) 'jackal'); this may be due to an interaction with Turk. *jēbke (see under *zīpe-kV).
