Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *tagù
Meaning: root, grass root
Russian meaning: корень, корень травы
Turkic: *TAgna
Mongolian: *degne- / *dagna-
Tungus-Manchu: *daga
Japanese: *tuku-nai
Comments: A designation for some root-crop or grass root. Mong. deg-ne-, Karakh. taɣ-na (although its PT antiquity is somewhat dubious, see above) may reflect a common derivative *tagù-nV. The resemblance of Jpn. tsuku-ne also may be not accidental (although synchronically -ne is, of course, analysable as ne 'root').
