Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bi̯ŏ́ŕu
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: calf, lamb
Russian meaning: теленок, ягненок
Turkic: *buŕagu
Mongolian: *biraɣu
Tungus-Manchu: *biaru
Korean: *puruk
Japanese: *pítú-nsí
Comments: KW 69, Владимирцов 361, Poppe 21, 81, Новикова 1972, 117. In Jpn. we have to assume a secondary vocalic development in a long word: *pútí-(u)si > *pítú(n)si (the word is most probably a compound with *úsí 'cow' in the second part, cf. the Korean match).
