Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *i̯ṓle
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to hang on (smth.), hang on hook
Russian meaning: вешать (на что-л.), висеть на крюке
Turkic: *īl-
Mongolian: *elgü-
Tungus-Manchu: *ol-
Korean: *ori
Comments: SKE 178, EAS 106, Poppe 76 (Turk.-Mong.; assumption of Mong. being borrowed from Turk., see Щербак 1997, 120, is improbable). Turk. has a somewhat unexpected narrowing: *īl- instead of *ẹ̄l-; however, the etymology still seems probable (despite Doerfer's categorical refusal: "lautgesetzlich unmöglich"; see TMN 2, 214).
