Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *č`i̯álV
Meaning: a k. of thorny plant
Russian meaning: вид колючего растения
Turkic: *č(i)alɨ-
Mongolian: *čulkir
Tungus-Manchu: *čil-
Japanese: *tára
Comments: The root denotes a wild plant, probably thorny; the vocalic reconstruction is not quite certain. In TM one would expect a *čial-, but the diphthong may have been distorted in a long form with initial affricate; Mong. *čulukir may similarly represent a later assimilation < *čalu-kir. In that case one could reconstruct *č`i̯ála.
