\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *máč`à
Meaning: to fast, hunger
Russian meaning: поститься, голодать
Turkic: *bAča-
Mongolian: *mačag
Tungus-Manchu: *maču-
Japanese: *mátúr-
Comments: Mong. mačag cannot be < Turk., despite EDT 293, Clark 1980, 43; it is also difficult to suppose Man. mačixi (especially the verb maču-) < Mong. mačag. The root thus seems to be reconstructable for PA, with the meaning approx. "to fast, hunger with religious purposes".
