Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *ki̯úne
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: person; people, country
Russian meaning: человек; народ, страна
Turkic: *Kün
Mongolian: *küɣün, *-m-
Tungus-Manchu: *kün-
Japanese: *kúní
Comments: KW 249, VEWT 309 (Turk.-Mong.), АПиПЯЯ 294, TMN 3, 656-657 (with criticism). The Mong. form is somewhat difficult: one has to suppose original *künün with velar ( > *küŋün > *küɣün) and labial ( > *kümün) assimilations.
