Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *gằgtà
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: one of a pair
Russian meaning: один из пары
Turkic: *Kat
Mongolian: *gagča
Tungus-Manchu: *gagda
Japanese: *kàtà
Comments: Rozycki 85 (TM-Mong.). Despite Doerfer MT 51, TM cannot be borrowed from Mong. The Mong. form presents some difficulties: apart from the unclear variant *ganča, the form *gagča itself can only belong here if it is an irregular development < *gagči < *gagti, or if it is a contraction of a derived form *gagta-ča. Note that Jpn. *kàtà may also be derived from PA *kalt`o q. v.
