Comments:АПиПЯЯ 281, Дыбо 5, Лексика 277. Ramstedt (SKE 89) compares the Kor. form with Mong. qarbiŋ etc. (see *k`i̯ắŕme), but this seems improper (the modern form kalbi goes back to MKor. kari-spjǝ). The Japanese form is somewhat insecure due to its late attestation and unclear suffix. In Mong cf. perhaps kerseŋ 'brisket'.
