Mongolian etymology :

Proto-Mongolian: *(h)ergül
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: sacrifice, donation
Russian meaning: жертвоприношение, пожертвование
Written Mongolian: ergül (L 326)
Khalkha: örgöl
Buriat: ürgel
Comments: The word appears to be quite transparently derived from ergü-, örgü- 'to raise, lift up' (also 'to offer, present') q. v. sub *ṓŕi. We suspect, however, that this may be a case of secondary reanalysis: *(h)ergül would be a quite regular reflex of *(h)elgü-r or *(h)elgü-l = Turk. *ạlkɨĺ 'blessing'. Note that in Lessing's dictionary we find separate entries: ergül 'donation, sacrifice' vs. örgül 'elevation' (L 641).
