\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *ńi̯ama
Meaning: low, level; side of the mountain
Russian meaning: низкий, ровный; склон горы
Turkic: *jAmač
Mongolian: *nam
Tungus-Manchu: *niama
Japanese: *mama
Comments: Phonetics in the Mong.-Tung. area presents some problems, probably because of an early dissimilation *ńi̯ama > *ni̯ama in part of the dialects, and some dialectal mixture afterwards (cf. several different reflexes in Evk.).
