Meaning: doll
Russian meaning: кукла
Turkic: *KAgur
Tungus-Manchu: *xaku-kan (/*k-)
Korean: *koāŋ
Japanese: *kùnkù-tú
Comments: Дыбо 15. Cf. Khalkha xǖxeldej 'doll' (a contamination with xǖxe-n 'child, girl'). One should also mention WMong. qoduɣu-čin 'clown; mask': this may be a metathesis < *kogu-du- ( = PJ *kùnkùtú) and the form may actually shed light on the mysterious Karakh. qoδurčuk (quite probably < *kog-du-rču-k = WMong. qoduɣu-čin). {Cf. PE *kǝɣina- 'face'}.
