Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *i̯ā́ga ( ~ -i)
Meaning: a k. of disease
Russian meaning: вид болезни
Turkic: *īg
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)iag-
Japanese: *ia ~ *ai
Comments: Cf. Bur. jogšo- 'to ache, nag'. Turk. *īg is perhaps a result of secondary narrowing < *(i)ēg. In TM there exists also an apparent derivative *iagsi- 'to sneeze' which is very similar to PT *aksɨr- (*agsɨr-) id. (see ЭСТЯ 1, 194-195). This may be either an old derivative, phonetically distorted in Turkic, or an independent onomatopoeic root.
