Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`oru
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: short; diminish, grow less
Russian meaning: короткий; уменьшаться
Turkic: *Kor(a)-
Mongolian: *koru-
Tungus-Manchu: *xurumü-
Korean: *korh-
Comments: SKE 122, KW 188, ОСНЯ 1, 367, АПиПЯЯ 292, Дыбо 13; further Nostratic parallels see in ОСНЯ 1, 367-368. The Korean reflex is somewhat dubious here, because the root may be the same as korh- < *górà q. v. (possibly a secondary merger). Cf. also Kalm. xor- 'to be afraid, shy', PT *Kor-(u)k- 'to be afraid' (ЭСТЯ 6, 79-80), possibly derived from *k`oru 'grow less, be damaged' - but also possibly a different root.
