Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *mḕnò
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: self, body
Russian meaning: сам, сущность, тело
Turkic: *bu(-n) (?)
Mongolian: *mön
Tungus-Manchu: *mēn
Korean: *móm
Japanese: *mǝ̀nǝ̀
Comments: The Turkic form may belong here if it represents a secondary development *bu(-n) 'this' < *bun 'self'; the vocalism, however, speaks against the comparison (*bạ(-n) would be expected). The root reveals contaminations with *méŋu 'whole' q. v. Illich-Svitych (ОСНЯ 2, 70) compares the Turk.-Mong. stem with PKartv. *m(a)-, PU *mū / *mō etc.
