Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ìmè ( ~ -i)
Meaning: a k. of vegetable
Russian meaning: вид корнеплода
Korean: *máh
Japanese: *ìmǝ̀ (~-ua)
Comments: Whitman 1985, 180, 237. A Kor.-Jpn. isogloss, so the reconstruction is rather approximate. Cf. perhaps Oroch impai 'a k. of onion (порей)' (ТМС 1, 313); Orok imu 'potato' (ibid.) may be < Jpn.
