Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kāmV
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: be weak, oppress
Russian meaning: быть немощным, подавлять, препятствовать
Turkic: *KĀma-
Mongolian: *kama-
Tungus-Manchu: *kama-
Korean: *kam-
Japanese: *kǝ̀mà-r- ( ~ kuàmà-r-)
Comments: KW 165, EAS 47, SKE 91-2. The Kor. parallel is found only there; as for the Japanese word, it is not attested in any OJ or MJ sources, so the PJ reconstruction is uncertain. One should also note irregular PJ vocalism and tone (*-a- with high tone would be expected). This all makes the Kor.-Jpn. aspect of the etymology dubious.
