Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ébá
Meaning: corpse
Russian meaning: труп
Turkic: *gEbre
Mongolian: *keɣür
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)eburen
Japanese: *kámpánái
Comments: Цинциус 1984, 124. In Turkic the root is preserved basically in Oghuz languages; it obviously obtained initial *g- (*k- would be normally expected) under the double influence of *gēp- 'to swell (of belly)' and *gebre- 'fragile'.
