Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ḗnVt`a
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: wall, wall mat
Russian meaning: стена, циновка для стены
Turkic: *K(i)ā(j)nat
Mongolian: *kana(n)
Tungus-Manchu: *xondori
Comments: A Western isogloss. In Turkic the root has merged with *Kājnat 'wing' (see under *kēńa); this homonymy may have influenced Mong., where the stem qana(n) occasionally means 'wing, маховые перья'; but Mong. hardly < Turk., despite TMN 1, 416. In Mong. one has to suppose a reanalysis of *-t as a plural suffix.
