Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *mólu
Meaning: ridge, corner
Russian meaning: конек (крыши), угол
Turkic: *bul-
Tungus-Manchu: *mulu
Korean: *mằrằ
Japanese: *múná-i
Comments: Lee 1958, 115 (Kor.-TM), Whitman 1985, 183, 237 (Kor.-Jpn.). Despite SKE 139, hardly a loan in Manchu from Kor. In Jpn. we have to assume *múná < *mura-n (cf. Turk. buluŋ); in Turkic - a secondary narrowing (*buluŋ < *boluŋ).
