Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kūči

Meaning: power
Russian meaning: сила
Turkic: *gǖč
Mongolian: *küči-n
Tungus-Manchu: *kusǖ-
Korean: *kóčắk
Comments: EAS 96, KW 249, Владимирцов 165, Poppe 63, 112, АПиПЯЯ 16. High tone in Kor. is not clear. Despite TMN 3, 627, Щербак 1997, 128, Mong. is hardly borrowed from Turkic; TM cannot be borrowed from Mong., despite Rozycki 113. In АПиПЯЯ (p. 77) the root was compared with PJ *kìsV- 'to contest'. The latter, however, has better Tungus parallels: TM *gali- 'to contest' (ТМС 1, 138), see *gaĺi.
