Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *i̯uge(ŕV)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: river, small river
Russian meaning: река, речка
Turkic: *ügüŕ (~ *ö-)
Mongolian: *üjer
Tungus-Manchu: *ugē(r)- / *ug-be(n)
Korean: *jǝ̀hɨ́r
Japanese: *ùrà
Comments: KW 456, Владимирцов 323, (Turk.-Mong.), PKE 63 (Kor.-Turk.). Low tone in Jpn. (not matching the low tone in Kor.) is probably due to contraction. The Mong. form cannot be separated, despite TMN 2, 156 ("lautgesetzlich mit der tü. Form nichts zu tun"). One should also note PTM *üge-n 'river duct' (Neg. īɣen, Ud. jogo-so, Ul. ui-n, ТМС 1, 297, 2, 250); PT *ögen (OUygh. ögen, Oyr. ȫn).
