Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ki̯ájo
Meaning: strong odour, smoke
Russian meaning: сильный запах, дым
Turkic: *KAjɨr
Mongolian: *kej
Tungus-Manchu: *koja
Japanese: *káiN-púri
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 109, 277, Мудрак Дисс. 103 (see also *gi̯ūbe, *ki̯àjú, with a possibility of contaminations). Note that both in MMong. and OJ the root is sometimes treated as borrowed from MChin. khɨ̀j (see, e.g., Rozycki 139) - which is not totally excluded, but somewhat dubious (very early attestation both in Mongolian and Japanese texts, and unexplained vocalism).
