Proto-Altaic: *k`i̯uĺe
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: person
Russian meaning: человек
Turkic: *kiĺi
Mongolian: *kulunča
Tungus-Manchu: *(x)ile ( ~ -ü-)
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 283. A Western isogloss. The comparison is quite acceptable, but its reliability is weakened by the isolated nature of the Evenki form within TM. Cf., however, the ethnonym *kile 'Evenki' (ТМС 1, 393) (possibly borrowed in Evk. from a form like *xile or *xüle) and Evn. kịlča 'Yakut'.
