Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ni̯òru ( ~ -ŕ-)
Meaning: to untie, unwrap
Russian meaning: развязывать, разворачивать
Tungus-Manchu: *ner- (?*niar-)
Korean: *nắrí-
Japanese: *nura-
Comments: An Eastern isogloss. It would be tempting to add also PT *jȫr- 'to untie' (see under *dòru) and perhaps also *jȫrge- 'to wrap, twist' (see ЭСТЯ 4, 234-237), but vocalism raises problems.
