Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *tī̀du
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: elevation
Russian meaning: возвышенность
Tungus-Manchu: *dīdü ( ~ ǯ-)
Korean: *tùtǝ́n
Japanese: *tùtùmí
Comments: Lee 1958, 113 (Tung.-Kor.). An Eastern isogloss. The Korean form is aberrant in several respects (-u- instead of expected -ɨ-, -t- instead of expected -r-, low tone instead of expected high), and one may suspect it in being borrowed < Japanese.
