Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *màli
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: stick, cudgel
Russian meaning: палка, дубина
Turkic: *baltu
Mongolian: *milaɣa
Tungus-Manchu: *mala
Korean: *már
Comments: Cf. also modern Kor. moru 'anvil', moru-čhä 'hammer' (although the vocalism is not quite clear < *maru?). Turk. *baltu 'axe' > Mong. balta (whence Evk. balta etc.), see Doerfer 1, 199, Щербак 1997, 104. Both Iranian and Akkadian origins of Turk. *baltu (see Poppe 1953, Menges 1953) seem improbable and its Altaic origin quite possible.
