Proto-Altaic: *č`ī́p`a
Meaning: branch, sharp branch
Russian meaning: ветка, острая ветка
Turkic: *čɨ̄p
Tungus-Manchu: *čipa-
Comments: A Turk.-Tung. isogloss; possible but not very reliable. The root seems to be distinct from *č`ḗbV 'branch, staff' and from *č`ipV 'sharp edge' q. v. - although contaminations were of course possible.
