Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kā́k`i
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to belch, choke
Russian meaning: рыгать, давиться
Turkic: *gēkir-
Mongolian: *kekere- / *kakira- / *kaka-
Tungus-Manchu: *kaxa-
Korean: *kài'ò-
Comments: KW 223. An onomatopoeic root; the correspondences, however, are quite regular (except for the sporadic assimilative weakening *kahi- > kai- in Kor.), and it may well be common Altaic. Mong. is hardly borrowed from Turk., despite Щербак 1997, 126.
