Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *či̯uŕi
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: even, straight
Russian meaning: ровный, прямой
Turkic: *düŕ
Mongolian: *čir-
Korean: *čɨ̀rɨ̀-
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 13. The Mong. reflex is not quite certain: it is attested only in Kalm. and not quite satisfactory vocalically. The root is phonetically very close to *či̯úŕu 'string', and was obviously liable to contaminations (in particular, Jpn. *túrá 'row' may actually continue either root).
