Proto-Altaic: *ǯḕri
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: to be annoyed, disgusted
Russian meaning: быть раздраженным, испытывать отвращение
Turkic: *jẹr-
Mongolian: *ǯirke-
Tungus-Manchu: *ǯēri-

Comments: Phonetically the TM form is a very good match for the rest; the meaning 'boast' may be connected if we suppose a causative formation ('cause annoyance (e.g. by boasting') > 'boast'.
