Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *sī́p`í
Meaning: a k. of pipe
Russian meaning: вид трубки
Turkic: *sīpek
Mongolian: *sib-
Japanese: *simpai
Comments: Cf. also PT *sɨ̄pɨŕgu 'flute' (ЭСТЯ 7). In TM one may note Neg. sịwsaxawụn 'wire (for pipe cleaning'), Nan. sịosaqo 'wire (for burning a hole), sịosan- 'to burn (a hole with a wire)', Oroch siapti 'mouthpiece (of a tobacco pipe)' (ТМС 2, 74, 75). These words are hardly borrowed from Mong. sibsiɣür, but are rather reflexes of original *sibe- 'pull out, pick out' (see *zi̯upi) influenced by the Mong. word.
