Proto-Altaic: *kele ( ~ -i, -o)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: daughter-in-law, bride
Russian meaning: невеста, невестка
Turkic: *gẹlin
Tungus-Manchu: *keli
Comments: ОСНЯ 1, 296, Räsänen 1955, 18:3, 9. A well known Turk.-Tung. isogloss. Despite Doerfer TMN 3, 667 (Tung.-Turk.: "...der Vergleich zweifelhaft bleibt"; Turk. *gelin < *gel- 'come' - "ethnologisch sehr überzeugende Etymologie"...), the relation between PT *gẹl- 'to come' and *gẹlin 'daughter-in-law' is purely folk-etymological.
