Altaic etymology :

\data\alt\altet
Proto-Altaic: *t`éra ( ~ -u)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: hair, wool, thread
Russian meaning: волосы, шерсть
Turkic: *TAram
Tungus-Manchu: *terge-
Korean: *tǝ̀rh(í)
Comments: SKE 280, АПиПЯЯ 296. This comparison seems better than relating the Korean word to Turk. *tel 'wire' (SKE 282). Equally unconvincing is Doerfer's (TMN 1, 244) attempt of deriving the Turk. forms from an Iranian source.
