Proto-Altaic: *bi̯úga
Meaning: wheel, pommel of a saddle
Russian meaning: колесо, лука седла
Mongolian: *büɣü-rge
Korean: *pàhói
Japanese: *bà
Comments: Martin 246. Low tone in Jpn. is probably due to contraction. In Mong. one has to assume *büɣü-rge < *biɣe-r-gü. Cf. Manchu faχun 'rim of a wheel' ( < Kor.?).
