Proto-Altaic: "*bo{>}ga" | Query method: Match substring
Proto-Altaic: *bŏga ( ~ -u, -o)
Meaning: pregnant (of animals); to bear a bastard or miscarry
Russian meaning: беременная (о животных); рожать до срока или вне брака
Turkic: *bogaŕ
Mongolian: *boɣo-
Tungus-Manchu: *bogī-
Korean: *pằi-
Comments: EAS 57, АПиПЯЯ 295. Doerfer's attempt (TMN 2, 348) to refute the Turk.-Tung. parallel for semantic reasons is unsuccessful. The meaning 'slave' in Mong. and Tung. is obviously derived < 'bastard', 'illegal child' (derivation < *boɣo- 'bind' and attempt to derive the TM words for 'slave' < Mong. in Poppe 1972, 96 is unsuccessful). The Kor. word has been secondarily associated with pắi 'belly' (see under {*p`ḕjló}).
