Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *i̯ańu
Meaning: line, furrow
Russian meaning: борозда, черта
Turkic: *En
Mongolian: *(h)oji-su
Tungus-Manchu: *ońa-
Japanese: *ùnài
Comments: The root is very similar to *i̯ū́ńa 'pit, ravine' and *i̯ŭ́ne 'notch (on arrow)' q. v., and there could have been some interaction between them - which could, in particular, explain Turk. -n instead of the expected *-ń.
