Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *gijo
Meaning: notch, to cut aslant
Russian meaning: зарубка, резать наискосок
Turkic: *Kɨj-
Tungus-Manchu: *gia-
Japanese: *ki
Comments: Kalm. kāčǝ- (WMong. kijači-, KW 222) 'to split (wood)' is probably borrowed from the Turk. derivative *Kɨjgač- (although the latter now means basically 'slant', the original meaning was 'cut aslant'). If the latter was the original meaning in PA, one could also compare Mong. *geji-, *geje- 'slanting, oblique' (otherwise see notes to *k`i̯úŋ(k)u).
