Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *bŭkrV
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: pea, nut, cone
Russian meaning: горох, орех, шишка
Turkic: *burčak
Mongolian: *buɣurčag
Tungus-Manchu: *boKari, *boKa-kta
Korean: *phắs
Comments: Дыбо 10, AKE 15, EAS 58. Phonetically a rather complicated case because of the rare medial cluster *-kr- with non-standard reflexes. Turkic, Mongolian and probably Korean reflect a suffixed form *bukrV-č`V (MKor. phắs = *phắč < *bukVr-č`V); medial -k- in the cluster had disappeared in PT and yielded -ɣ- in Mong. Another derivative from the same root may be the Turk.-Mong. name of various kinds of berries: PT *bögürtlen 'blackberry' etc., Mong. *böɣerel(ǯi)gene 'raspberry etc.' (KW 56).
