Proto-Altaic: *kìjá

Russian meaning: вид травы
Turkic: *Kɨj(g)ak
Mongolian: *kija-
Tungus-Manchu: *kijo-kta
Korean: *kójōm

Comments: The root denotes some wild-growing grass with sharp edges or thorns. In Kor. there probably occurred a secondary vowel assimilation (*káj- would be expected). Some interaction with *kúja 'nut' was possible, especially in the Kor.-Jap. area.
