Turkic: *KAgur-
Mongolian: *kaɣur-
Tungus-Manchu: *kurgi-
Korean: *kɨ̀rh-

Comments: Mong. may be < Turk. (see TMN 3, 542, Щербак 1997, 132), but may well be genuine, see KW 202, Владимирцов 206, Poppe 48. Korean has the typical "verbal" low tone. The specific medial cluster explains somewhat irregular vowel behaviour in Kor.
