Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kéra
Meaning: belly; body, ribs
Russian meaning: живот; тело, ребра
Turkic: *Kạrɨn
Tungus-Manchu: *kerimuk
Korean: *kari
Japanese: *kárá-(n)tá
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 281, Дыбо 5, Лексика 277. Ramstedt (SKE 89) compares the Kor. form with Mong. qarbiŋ etc. (see *k`i̯ắŕme), but this seems improper (the modern form kalbi goes back to MKor. kari-spjǝ). The Japanese form is somewhat insecure due to its late attestation and unclear suffix. In Mong cf. perhaps kerseŋ 'brisket'.
