Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *č`i̯op`è
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: water container, vessel
Russian meaning: водоем, сосуд
Turkic: *čap-
Mongolian: *čöɣerüm
Tungus-Manchu: *čup- / *čop-
Korean: *č(j)apa-
Japanese: *tǝ̀pî ( ~ -ua-)
Comments: A common derivative *č`i̯op`è-rV is reflected in Mong. *čöɣe-rü-m and Evk. čupe-r; another suffixed form, *č`i̯op`è-k`V (originally diminutive) may be reconstructed on the basis of Evk. čop-kī and Kor. čabä-gi. The root must have denoted a big water container, perhaps both artificial and natural.
