Russian meaning: стирать, вытирать, разламывать
Turkic: *ajɨt-
Mongolian: *haɣu-
Tungus-Manchu: *pajū-
Korean: *pūi-
Japanese: *pajas-
Comments: One of the common Altaic "Verba des Schlagens", with a rather uncertain semantics. The basic meaning seems to be "rub off, peel off", whence "break, tear into small pieces" etc. MMong. xa'ut- may reflect the same derivative as PT *ajɨt-, PA *p`ajo-t`V.
