Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *k`ume ( ~ -i̯u-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: black; coal
Russian meaning: черный; уголь
Turkic: *kömür
Korean: *kǝ̄m-
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 295. A Turk.-Kor. isogloss (cf. also Old Koguryo *kămul 'black', see Miller 1979, 8; perhaps also Manchu χumara- 'to sully', ТМС 1, 477). The comparison seems quite possible, although the scarcity of reflexes prevents a secure reconstruction of vocalism.
