Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *gudV ( ~ -o-) (?)
Meaning: straight, vertical
Russian meaning: прямой, вертикальный
Mongolian: *goda-
Tungus-Manchu: *goda-
Korean: *kòt-
Comments: Lee 1958, 111, ТМС 1, 166 (Tung.-Kor.). Not a very reliable root. Note that the Manchu form may belong here only if it is separated from TM *gugda 'high, tall' (see under *gók`ì), which is not necessarily so. The reflex -t- in Kor. points rather to *-t`- (unless one presumes secondary morphonological analogies). One wonders if all the forms present here do not actually represent reflexes of *gok`-dV, the suffixed form of PA *gók`i.
