Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ki̯á[t`]ó
Meaning: stern, steering oar
Russian meaning: корма, рулевое весло
Turkic: *KAdɨk
Mongolian: *kitüge
Tungus-Manchu: *kude
Japanese: *kántí
Comments: Reasons for voicing in TM and Turkic are not clear (assimilative development in a suffixed form *ki̯át`ó-gV?; note that in PTM we can also reconstruct *kudege - the -ge would have been lost in all languages where the root is attested).
