Proto-Altaic: *ṓjV
Meaning: to sew, pierce
Russian meaning: шить, протыкать
Turkic: *ōj-
Mongolian: *oja-
Tungus-Manchu: *uji-
Comments: EAS 143, KW 447. A Western isogloss. The Turkic and Mongolian forms clearly point to the original meaning 'pierce, sew', so the attribution of the TM form ("to tie, bind") is not quite reliable. One has to deal with a possibility that the TM forms, despite their wide distribution, are actually borrowed from Mong. uja- 'to tie, bind' (which cannot be genetically related to Mong., since the latter goes back to PM *huja- - so far without Altaic etymology -, with h- well preserved in Southern Mongolian languages).
