Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *si̯ū́ra
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: arrow; fight, battle, success in battle
Russian meaning: стрела; битва, удача в бою
Turkic: *sɨ̄r-
Mongolian: *sur
Tungus-Manchu: *sori
Korean: *sàră-
Japanese: *satu-i
Comments: The Korean reflex is somewhat dubious, being traditionally derived < *sār- 'to live' (sară-čap- = 'to take alive'). This, however, may be a secondary folk etymology, the original meaning of the compound being 'to take booty'.
