Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *núra
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to pile, stack
Russian meaning: накладывать, нагромождать
Mongolian: *norum
Tungus-Manchu: *nora-
Korean: *nar- ( ~ -ă-)
Japanese: *nárá(m)p-
Comments: ТМС 1, 606 (TM-Mong.). Cf. also MKor. núrí 'paddy pile', núrí- 'pile up paddies or grasses' (see Lee 1958, 116) - because of quite exceptional tone and vocalism probably borrowed from Manchu. The Manchu form, despite Rozycki 163, can be hardly explained as borrowed < Mong. In Turkic cf. perhaps Khak. (Верб.) jurlas 'crosswise supports for the firewood (for better burning)'.
