Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bi̯ura
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to abandon, lose
Russian meaning: покидать, терять
Turkic: *bɨrak-
Tungus-Manchu: *burī-
Korean: *pǝ̄ri- / *pằrí-
Japanese: *párà-p- / *pàrá-p-
Comments: SKE 184, 192, Martin 243. The Jpn. form is dubious because of irregular devoicing and somewhat aberrant semantics; cf. also an odd variation between *pằr- and *pǝ̄r- in Kor., suggesting that we may be dealing with more than one root here: one of them could have also resulted in Mong. bara- 'to end, finish'. Turkic has a peculiar disyllabic structure and Ramstedt may be right in suggesting an old compound; for the second part cf. *ek- `to sow' < `to throw' (v. sub *p`èk`a).
