Proto-Altaic: *kukata ( ~ -k`-)
Meaning: carpal joint
Russian meaning: кистевой сустав
Mongolian: *kagda
Tungus-Manchu: *koKalta
Japanese: *kakatǝ
Comments: The meaning in Mongolian is probably original here; in Japanese one has to suppose a shift 'carpal joint of feet' > 'heel'; in TM - > 'covering for the carpal joint (wrist)' = 'mittens'.
