Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *sési
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: deer, wild animal
Russian meaning: олень, дичь
Turkic: *sạs-na- (?)
Tungus-Manchu: *sesi-n
Korean: *sàsắm
Japanese: *sisi
Comments: EAS 102, АПиПЯЯ 79. For the Turk. semantics cf. OJ wi-no-sisi 'pig, swine'. The Turkic reflex, however, is not quite secure: there is only an isolated Chuvash word and the vowel reflex seems aberrant; also unclear is the phonology of the Hung. ( < Bulg.) loanword disznó (presupposing *ǯisnaɣ, see MNyTESz 1, 646-647).
