Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ŏ́mi
Meaning: to dig
Russian meaning: копать, черпать
Turkic: *göm-
Tungus-Manchu: *xumu-
Comments: Цинциус 1984, 108-109. A Turko-TM isogloss. The TM form points quite explicitly to *k`-; reasons for voicing in PT are not clear: perhaps a merger with PA *gèmo 'to fill in' (q. v.), which otherwise has no Turkic reflex.
