Proto-Altaic: *kabari
Meaning: oar
Russian meaning: весло
Mongolian: *kajiɣur, -bu(r)
Tungus-Manchu: *kabri-kī
Japanese: *kapiara
Comments: A common Altaic cultural term. The difference between *kabari and *gằja is not quite clear: both can mean 'oar' or 'boat pole' in daughter languages. The Mong. forms can be explained from an earlier form *kabi(r)-ɣur, whence *kaibur / *kai-ɣur.
