Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *pi̯ŭ̀bi
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to mince, saw
Russian meaning: крошить, пилить
Turkic: *bij-
Mongolian: *(h)üji-
Tungus-Manchu: *pubu-
Korean: *pjàpắi-
Japanese: *piwa-
Comments: Correspondences are basically regular, with the following comments: in Turkic one has to suppose secondary delabialization *bij- < *büj- ( < *büb-); the Kor. form pjàpắi- must be denominative, derived from a noun *pjàpắ- < *pibV-pu- < *pi̯ubi-p`u- ( = PTM *pubu-pu-). Cf. *p`i̯ṑpo: the two roots are sometimes hard to distinguish.
