Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *nū́ru ( ~ -o)
Meaning: dwelling place
Russian meaning: жилище
Turkic: *jūrt
Mongolian: *niruɣu
Tungus-Manchu: *nora-
Korean: *nùrí
Comments: Mong. *niruɣu probably < *nuriɣu (under the influence of *niruɣu 'back, spine'?). It would be also possible to regard the Manchu form as borrowed < Mong. (but preserving the earlier meaning), in which case the PA reconstruction would be *ni̯ṓru.
