Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *nālV
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: earth, land
Russian meaning: земля, страна
Turkic: *jalaŋ
Mongolian: *nala-
Tungus-Manchu: *nā
Korean: *nàráh
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 290, EAS 75, SKE 161 (the Japanese parallel cited by Ramstedt is dubious), Menges 1984, 278-279. The PTM form points to original length, so the low tone in Korean is irregular.
