Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *sŏ̀nu
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: dog hunt, dog rope
Russian meaning: охота с собаками, собачий повод
Turkic: *sonar
Tungus-Manchu: *suna
Korean: *sànhằiŋ
Japanese: *sùnà-tǝr-
Comments: The Kor. form is a secondary derivative from an unattested verb *sàn-hă-, which explains the "verbal" low tone (although the -a-vowel is not quite expected, possibly - a dissimilation from *sằn-hă-). The Jpn. meaning is obviously secondary ("hunting" > "fishing").
