Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *p`ujme
Meaning: to mix
Russian meaning: смешивать
Mongolian: *hüjime-
Tungus-Manchu: *pume- ( ~ -ü-)
Korean: *pǝ̀mɨ́r-
Comments: Poppe 12, Lee 1958, 110, Цинциус 1984, 59. The root is somewhat dubious: the older meaning attested in Kor. is 'to bind, tie up', and the root may actually reflect PA *p`émi 'twist a thread' (q. v.); the same is true of the TM forms that may in fact (especially because for Jurch. the meaning 'bind' is attested) go back to the same PTM root *pem-.
