\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *eŕmu
Meaning: a k. of grass, wormwood
Russian meaning: вид травы, полынь
Turkic: *eŕen
Mongolian: *erme
Korean: *òrmí
Comments: The root denotes wormwood, artemisia in Turkic and Mongolian; in Korean the meaning is not quite certain (probably some sort of shepherd's purse, Capsella bursa-pastoris). The phonetic match is precise, anyway, and the reconstruction seems reliable.
