\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *ni̯ăke
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: neck, vertebra
Russian meaning: шея, (шейный) позвонок
Turkic: *jaka
Mongolian: *nigur-su
Tungus-Manchu: *nikimna
Comments: A Western isogloss. See VEWT 180 (Turk.-Tung.; but Kor. mjǝk 'neck' cannot belong here), ОСНЯ 2, 92, АПиПЯЯ 293. Doerfer (TMN 4, 104) tries (in vain) to destroy the Turk.-Tung. paralle l ("aus lautlichen ... als auch semantischen Gründen inkorrekt" - ?). The comparison of the Mong. form with Man. ikursun in KW 281, Rozycki 115 should be regarded as erroneous (Man. ikursun < ТМ *xīKeri q. v.). For further Nostratic parallels see ОСНЯ 2, 92.
