Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`V̀sá ( ~ k-, g-, -č-)
Meaning: hat, umbrella
Russian meaning: шляпа, зонтик
Korean: *kás
Japanese: *kàsá
Comments: EAS 155. Cf. also MKor. kòs-kár 'hat'. Formally this Kor.-Jpn. isogloss may be derived from PA *k`i̯ū̀ča 'skin from animal's paw' (if the original meaning is postulated as 'skin covering'?); however, until some additional information is available, we prefer to keep these two etyma apart.
