Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: "*l{/}o{/}re" | Query method: Match substring
Proto-Altaic: *ĺóre (?)
Meaning: a k. of deer
Russian meaning: вид оленя
Mongolian: *ǯüre
Tungus-Manchu: *lor- (?)
Korean: *nòrằ
Japanese: *nǝrǝ ~ *nuarua
Comments: The root presents several problems: a) Mong. has ǯ- instead of an expected d-; b) the TM forms are few and rather controversial (it is not really clear whether the Manchu form is related to Evk.); c) the Jpn. form is attested late. There may also have been some confusion with the reflexes of *negre '(female) deer' q. v.
