Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`āp`a ( ~ -i, -u)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: bladder, film
Russian meaning: пузырь, пленка
Turkic: *Kāp
Mongolian: *kabičak
Tungus-Manchu: *xap-
Korean: *kapo
Comments: One of several similar roots, actively interacting with each other - see notes to *k[ā]p`á 'to cover'. Mong. *kabi-čak 'groin' is a result of secondary semantic development, probably < *'scrotum' or 'hymen' (cf. the meanings in Turkic).
