\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *k`i̯ōt`e
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of knife or arrow
Russian meaning: вид ножа или стрелы
Turkic: *kēt-men
Mongolian: *kituga
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)utu, -ke
Comments: A Western isogloss. In Turkic one would expect a closed *ẹ̄, but in fact Chuv. katmak points to an open vowel. This may be due to a natural contamination of this root with the reflex of PA *ki̯ā́tu 'sharp tool, notch' q. v.
