Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bŏ́ru (~ -a,-o)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: dust; smoke, whirlwind
Russian meaning: пыль; дым, вихрь
Turkic: *bur-uk
Mongolian: *bur-gi- / *bür-gi-
Tungus-Manchu: *bure-ki
Korean: *pằrằ-m
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 288. See ТМС 1, 113 (Mong.-Tung.); despite ОСНЯ 1, 188 the TM root is hardly related to Turk. *bōr (on which see *mā́ro) and to Mong. bur 'dirty, dark'. The Korean root belongs rather here than to Manchu fara- 'to dry' (SKE 191).
