Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bi̯ùsí ( ~ p-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to hide
Russian meaning: прятать(ся)
Turkic: *bus-
Korean: *pskɨ́-
Japanese: *pìsǝ́-ka
Comments: Korean has a usual loss of narrow vowel between a stop and a fricative. The back row in PT is not quite regular (*büs- would be expected). It might be better to reconstruct *biso ( > Turk. *bɨs-, with a subsequent labial assimilation > *bus-). In TM cf. perhaps Nan. busĩ 'rodents' stores' (ТМС 1, 115).
