Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *p`i̯ṓlo
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: way, path; patch, precipice
Russian meaning: дорога, тропа; проталина,ущелье
Turkic: *jōl
Tungus-Manchu: *pile-
Korean: *pjǝr-
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 283. Mong. ǯol 'luck', usually compared with PT *jōl (see VEWT 206 etc.), should be rather regarded as a loanword (because of the specific meaning), see TMN 4, 226-227, Щербак 1997, 124. The TM form is compared to Kor. pǝl 'meadow, plain' (SKE 196), for which another etymology is given in АПиПЯЯ (see *p`ā̀là). Note, however, that Kor. pjǝr- may be also derived from PA *p`i̯ā́rV 'split, precipice' (q. v.).
