Proto-Altaic: *pĕ̀su
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: hoar-frost, cold
Russian meaning: иней, мороз
Turkic: *bes
Mongolian: *(h)osu-

Comments: Shortness and low tone reconstructed because of Mong. *(h)-. The etymology is somewhat questionable because of late attestation in Turkic and a possibility of an alternative analysis of the Korean form (see above).
