Proto-Altaic: *p`ojme ( ~ -o)

Meaning: trousers, stockings
Russian meaning: штаны, чулки
Turkic: *ojma
Mongolian: *hojimu-su

Comments: KW 304, Владимирцов 268, Poppe 11, 67, Цинциус 1984, 41-42. Borrowing in Mong. from Turk. is quite dubious, despite Щербак 1997, 161. The stem may be derived from *p`ojV 'to bind' - reflected in PM *huja- (HY 39 xuja-, WMong. uja-, Khalkha uja-, Mongor fujā-) id.
