Proto-Altaic: *ṓre
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to plait, weave
Russian meaning: плести, ткать
Turkic: *ȫr-
Mongolian: *ör-
Korean: *ōr
Japanese: *ǝ́r-
Comments: Poppe 110 (Turk.-Mong.). Mong. *ör-mege may be < Turk. (cf. TMN 2, 47, Щербак 1997, 197), but may also reflect a common Turk.-Mong. derivative. The Turk. form can be alternatively compared with TM *poro-, *pori- 'turn round, spin', Mong. hor-či- id. (see *p`i̯áru), but the Turk.-Mong.-Jpn. comparison seems closer semantically.
