Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *p`ŭrVk`V
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: rope, lasso
Russian meaning: веревка, аркан
Turkic: *uruk
Mongolian: *huraka
Tungus-Manchu: *purka
Comments: EAS 53, 125, Poppe 101, Цинциус 1984, 55. A Western isogloss. Despite TMN 2, 87, Щербак 1997, 162, Mong. cannot be borrowed < Turkic; again, despite Doerfer MT 18, TM cannot be < Mong. (all because of archaic *p- preservation both in Mong. and TM). Quite enigmatic is the relationship of this root to synonymous *ŭk`urkV q. v.
