Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ā́pri
Meaning: fan, bellows
Russian meaning: веер, меха
Turkic: *kȫrü-
Mongolian: *keɣürge
Tungus-Manchu: *xarpu-
Korean: *kūr-
Comments: EAS 147, KW 243, Poppe 110 (but Kor. kurǝk 'small sack' is derived < kur- 'roll, wrap' and does not belong here). Despite Щербак 1977, 128, the Mong. form is hard to explain as a Turkic loanword. Irregular labialization in Turk. is probably caused by the simplification of the cluster with labial -b-.
