Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *li̯òmù
Meaning: bow
Russian meaning: лук
Turkic: *jüm-
Mongolian: *lumu
Tungus-Manchu: *liam-
Japanese: *dùmì
Comments: The Jpn. word is hard to separate; initial d- is probably due to influence of *da 'arrow'. If this is the case, one would be also tempted to compare PTM *lukī 'arrow' and PJ *duki 'quiver' - with exactly the same Anlaut correlation. {But see also under *dḕgni}.
