Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *tī̀k`i
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to plant vertically
Russian meaning: сажать, ставить вертикально
Turkic: *dik-
Mongolian: *čike
Tungus-Manchu: *dīKē-
Comments: EAS 50, 150, KW 85, 439, Poppe 16. A Western isogloss. In Mong. we also have Kalm. dekǝ- 'to stick in; coire' (KW 85), which Ramstedt (ibid.) compares with the Turkic and TM word; if this were the true cognate, we would have to think that Mong. *čig, *čike is borrowed < Turkic (as suggested in TMN 2, 659). The poor attestation of Mong. deke-, however, raises doubts (so does the final -e in Mong. čike, hardly to be expected in a Turkic loanword), so the traditional comparison (Turk. *dik : Mong. *čike) might be the best solution after all.
