Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *tuju
Meaning: to listen, perceive
Russian meaning: слушать, воспринимать
Turkic: *duj-
Mongolian: *duɣul-
Tungus-Manchu: *duja
Japanese: *tuá-p-
Comments: The isolated Even parallel is somewhat dubious, but the rest of the forms are well explained by the original meaning 'perceive' (whence both 'listen' and 'ask') and correspond well to each other. {In Mong. cf. also WMo don-duɣ 'соображающий', donuj- 'осмысливать'; for Evn. duja 'noise' cf. Mong. düj 'возглас для подзыва собаки').}
