Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *nèra
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: thin, flat
Russian meaning: тонкий, плоский
Turkic: *jAr-
Mongolian: *nari-n
Tungus-Manchu: *ner- / *nar-
Korean: *jǝ̄rp- ( < *njǝ̄r-p- ?)
Japanese: *nàràs-
Comments: If the Korean form is related here, it must be one of the irregular cases of *n- lost in front of -j-, -i- already in Middle Korean; however, since the -jǝ- diphthong is also not quite regular, the Korean match is rather questionable.
