Nostratic etymology :

Search within this database
Eurasiatic: *mVŋV
Meaning: brain
Borean: Borean
Altaic: *majŋi
Dravidian: *manḍ- 'skull, head'
References: ND 1446 reconstructs *mAnṭV 'jaw, skull, chin' based on Drav. and IE *ment-, but Drav. is closer semantically to PA (for IE *ment- see *mVńV-). The position of Sam. *munt/coy- 'beard' is unclear (perhaps unrelated to any of the roots).
