Proto-Altaic: *múgdà

Russian meaning: земля; место
Turkic: *bodun
Mongolian: *muǯi
Tungus-Manchu: *megdī / *mugdī

Comments: EAS 78-79, Whitman 1985, 171, 237, АПиПЯЯ 279. The hypothesis of borrowing in Korean from Tibetan (SKE 137) is untenable. The Turkic form may be alternatively derived from *bod 'body', in which case it may be unrelated to other forms above.
