Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *píńŕa
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: needle
Russian meaning: игла
Turkic: *bińŕ (*biŋŕ)
Mongolian: *birim
Tungus-Manchu: *pi[ńr]a
Korean: *pànắr (/-r-)
Japanese: *pàrí
Comments: KW 46, Martin 237. Despite Doerfer's skepticism (TMN 2, 311), Ramstedt's comparison still holds. Low tone in Jpn. is perhaps due to contraction (it does not match either Kor. or *b- in Mong.).
