Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ùla
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of big fish
Russian meaning: вид большой рыбы
Mongolian: *kalimu
Tungus-Manchu: *xol-sa
Japanese: *kàra-
Comments: Doerfer MT 91 and Rozycki 130 consider Mong. to be borrowed < TM (Evk. kalim etc., see ТМС 1, 366-367); however, the direction of borrowing was probably reverse. This is one of several similar fish names, sometimes difficult to distinguish - see *kalu, *k`ile.
