Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *èrì
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of fruit
Russian meaning: вид плода
Turkic: *erük
Mongolian: *üril
Korean: *ɨrɨm
Japanese: *ìtàpi
Comments: ЭСТЯ 1, 292. In TM cf. perhaps Evk. dial. erbeɣu 'name of a shrub with yellow flowers, used instead of tea' (ТМС 2, 462). Mong. *üril 'plum' should be kept distinct from *ölir 'small apple' (see under *ójle); however, since the sequences -l-r and -r-l in Mong. are liable to metathesis, it is difficult to decide which protoforms are actually reflected in *üril and *ölir. In any case, labialization in Mong. is probably secondary here (either *üril < *irü-l or *ölir < *elör < *erö-l).
