Proto-Altaic: *mḗča
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: monkey
Russian meaning: обезьяна
Turkic: *bĒčin
Mongolian: *mečin
Japanese: *masi
Comments: Ozawa 98-99, Лексика 168. The Jpn. parallel shows that, despite Clark 1980, 43, there is no need for assuming Mong. < Turk. (which is difficult because of *m-, but still possible; the Mong. variant bečin is certainly < Turkic).
