Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *t`ṑlu
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: head
Russian meaning: голова
Turkic: *tul(g)uŋ
Mongolian: *tolugai
Tungus-Manchu: *tōl-po-
Korean: *tằikòr
Comments: Лексика 204. The Kor. word may be analysed as "bald"+"brain" (see *t`eŕo and *kèĺǯo), so it may be necessary to remove it from the etymology (although a folk-etymological reanalysis was certainly possible); if not, the PA reconstruction should rather be corrected to *t`ōjlu.
