Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *si̯uǯakV
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of small animal
Russian meaning: вид небольшого животного
Turkic: *sɨčgan
Mongolian: *čičaguli
Tungus-Manchu: *suǯakī
Comments: EAS 96, TMN 3, 308; Лексика 168. A Western isogloss. The root seems plausible, but has some phonetic irregularities. Instead of Evk. suǯakī one could perhaps compare Tung. *šolčikī 'ferret' (ТМС 2, 405). Shor čolasčaɣa, Khak. čolǯanaχ 'ласка, хорек' (VEWT 115) is probably < TM.
