Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *gi̯ằlá
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: goose, duck
Russian meaning: гусь, утка
Mongolian: *galaɣu(n)
Tungus-Manchu: *gileŋē-
Japanese: *kàrí
Comments: In TM one would rather expect *gialeŋē, but the existing forms may be explained as secondarily monophthongized. Despite АПиПЯЯ 80, the Jpn. form rather belongs here (semantically it is exactly = Mong. ɣalaɣun, and in case *kàrí < *gāŕV we would rather expect *kàtí).
