Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *pi̯ŏ́ltorV (/-ld-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: a k. of small bird
Russian meaning: вид небольшой птицы
Turkic: *bɨldur- (*buldɨr-)
Mongolian: *bolǯir- / *boldur-
Tungus-Manchu: *pilti-
Korean: *pìtùrí
Japanese: *pàtuâ
Comments: Martin 228, Лексика 174. An expressive root with not quite precise correspondences (like in many bird names). Vocalism is rather hard to reconstruct: in PT we have to assume a secondary delabialization (*buldɨr- > *bɨldur-). Note velar suffixation in several Turkic and Mongolian forms; the PJ form also may go back to *pi̯oltor-ga > *pi̯oltoɣa > *patua.
