Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`i̯ùńí
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: thread, cloth
Russian meaning: нить, ткань
Turkic: *köjŋe-lek
Mongolian: *kejeŋ
Korean: *kính
Japanese: *kìnú
Comments: In Mong. one would rather expect -ö-; -e- is perhaps a result of assimilation. In Turko-Mongolian -ŋ- is possibly an original suffix (Turk. *köjŋe- < *köń-ŋe-); but a reconstruction like *k`i̯ùńŋí can also not be excluded.
