\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *mána (~-o)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to learn, try
Russian meaning: учиться, стараться
Tungus-Manchu: *man-dū-
Japanese: *máná(m)p-
Comments: A Tung.-Jpn. isogloss. Not quite reliable, since the Jpn. word is usually derived < *mána- 'imitating, similarity' (v. sub *méŋa); but a confusion of two originally different root was possible in Japanese.
