Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kŭ̀mu
Meaning: to wrap up, cover
Russian meaning: заворачивать, покрывать
Turkic: *Kum- / *Kɨm-
Mongolian: *kumi-
Tungus-Manchu: *kum-
Korean: *kàm-
Japanese: *kùm-
Comments: Martin 246 (Kor.-Jpn.). Korean has a usual low 'verbal' tone, but the -a-vowel is quite irregular . Perhaps one should think of an early merger in Kor. with the root *kàma 'to connect' (q. v.).
