Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *č`ap`i ( ~ *č`ep`a)
Meaning: a k. of horned animal
Russian meaning: вид рогатого животного
Turkic: *čepiĺ
Mongolian: *čaɣa
Comments: A Turk.-Mong. isogloss. There are alternatives: the Mong. form can be compared with Evk. čenekū, čeŋek 'reindeer' (ТМС 2, 421), while the Turkic may be compared with Evk. čubukī, čē̂wakūn 'mountain ram' (ТМС 2, 410). On the whole, a rather obscure case: cf. Хелимский 2000, 286 on a possibility of the Mongolian word being borrowed < Sam.
