Proto-Altaic: *p`i̯àká
Meaning: mighty, heavy
Russian meaning: мощный, тяжелый
Turkic: *iagɨr
Tungus-Manchu: *piaKa
Japanese: *pànkiá-
Comments: In Turkic one has to suppose the semantic development 'mighty, severe' > 'heavy' (cf. similarly 'important, authoritative' > 'heavy' in Mong., see under *kuńi). Cf. also *pĕ̀k`i.
