Proto-Altaic: *kḕńu
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: distress, envy
Russian meaning: расстройство, зависть
Turkic: *köń- ( ~ -j-)
Mongolian: *ken- / *kin-
Tungus-Manchu: *kēńe-
Japanese: *kuna-
Comments: In Turkic one would expect *geń-; the root, however, has since the oldest texts almost completely merged with PT *köń- 'to burn', so as to become almost indistinguishable from the latter. See also notes to *gū̀no.
