Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *t`aŋgiri
Meaning: oath, God
Russian meaning: клятва, божество
Turkic: *teŋri / *taŋrɨ
Mongolian: *taŋgarag
Tungus-Manchu: *taŋgura-
Japanese: *tinkir-
Comments: An interesting common Altaic religious / juridical term. The proposed etymology presumes that the meaning 'sky' in Turkic is secondary ( < 'God'); if it is not the case, one could accept S. Georg's thesis about a loan in Turkic < Yenisseian *tɨŋgVr- 'high' (see Georg 2001) - although we must admit that other loans from Yenisseian are unknown to us.
