\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *šálpu
Meaning: a celestial body
Russian meaning: назв. небесного тела
Mongolian: *čolbun
Tungus-Manchu: *čalbaka ( ~ š-)
Japanese: *súmpárú
Comments: Phonetically OJ subaru is a quite satisfactory match for Mong. and TM forms, so Miller's (Miller 1988) attempts to derive it either from Arabic al-zubra 'mane' (name for the two stars of the 11th lunar station) or from MKor. spɨr 'horn' are probably not necessary.
