Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *t`i̯ū̀t`u
Meaning: a k. of ungulate
Russian meaning: вид копытного животного
Turkic: *Titir (~ -ɨ-)
Tungus-Manchu: *tūte-
Korean: *tot(h)
Comments: In Turk. one has to accept secondary fronting (*titir < *tɨtɨr - if the attested form is not actually tɨtɨr, just wrongly vocalized). It is also tempting to compare OJ t(w)od(w)o, mod. todo `eared seal, Eumetopias jubatus' (for a very similar semantic relation cf. PA *tā̀ŋo), but the vocalism is not quite clear.
