\data\alt\japet
Proto-Japanese: *utu
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: hole, hollow
Russian meaning: полость, нора
Old Japanese: utu
Middle Japanese: uturo
Tokyo: ùtsuro
Kyoto: útsúró
Kagoshima: utsuró
Comments: JLTT 565. Accent not quite clear: either *ùtú- (Kyoto, Kagoshima), or *útú- (Kyoto, Tokyo). The root seems to be distinct from *útì 'inside' (v. sub *ṓŕì), although the stems certainly tend to contaminate.
