Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ši̯ábu
Meaning: small, narrow
Russian meaning: маленький, узкий
Turkic: *sEb-re-
Mongolian: *saɣa-
Tungus-Manchu: *šoba- ( ~ -p-)
Japanese: *súmp-
Comments: The root is rather sparsely attested in Turk. and TM, and the vocalic reconstruction is not quite secure (note that Jpn. -mp- speaks rather against the reconstruction of diphthong - unless the form is not actually a contraction of *súwu-mp- with a labial suffix).
