Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *lā́mo
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of bag
Russian meaning: вид мешка
Turkic: *jĀmčɨk
Mongolian: *nambuga
Tungus-Manchu: *lam(b)a
Korean: *nằmằčh
Comments: A derivative *lā́mo-č`V (or even *lā́mo-č`V-k`V) can be reconstructed on the basis of PT *jĀm-čɨk and PK *nằmằčh. There seems to have existed a similar root with a medial cluster *-mb- and meaning a k. of vessel, reflected in Evk. lamban `scoop, ladle' and PJ *nampai, OJ nabe `vessel, pan' (probably borrowed into Kor. nampi id.); a merger with this root may explain occasional -b- in TM and -b- in Mongolian.
