Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *č`i̯ū́[g]a
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: scarce, poor
Russian meaning: бедный
Turkic: *čɨ̄gań
Mongolian: *čukag
Tungus-Manchu: *čuki
Comments: A Western isogloss, somewhat questionable phonetically. Unclear is -k- in TM and Mong. (*-g- would be expected). A possible solution is to reconstruct for all three subgroups a suffixed form *č`i̯ugu-kV.
