Proto-Altaic: *sàk`ò ( ~ z-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of fish
Russian meaning: вид рыбы
Tungus-Manchu: *sakan-
Korean: *sòkóarí
Japanese: *sàkâi (~-ia)
Comments: An Eastern isogloss; cf. perhaps also Oyr. sagalak 'рыбка-урюп', Mong. (L 657) saɣamqa 'salt water fish, perch(?)'. Like in many fish names, details are not clear: note that the TM forms may be actually borrowed from Jpn. sakana `fish' (originally `wine-side dish'). Cf. also *suku.
