Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bójĺo
Meaning: to learn, be attentive
Russian meaning: учить(ся), быть внимательным
Turkic: *boĺgu-
Mongolian: *bolgu-ɣa-
Korean: *pằihó-
Japanese: *bǝ́sí-pa-
Comments: Street 1980, 287 compares the PT form with Mong. bolba-sun 'trained, educated, mature' (possibly also related as a suffixed form). Medial *-j- should be reconstructed to account for loss of *-ĺ- in Korean.
