Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *zi̯ognV
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: sleeve
Russian meaning: рукав
Turkic: *jegn
Tungus-Manchu: *sūn
Japanese: *suán-tài
Comments: High tone in Jpn. is probably due to contraction (*suán-tai < *sugan-tai, where -tai = *tai 'hand'). If *zi̯ognV (with a rare -gn- cluster) < *zi̯onV-gV, the stem may be a derivation of *zi̯ōnu 'fist, hand' q. v.
