Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *kṓńi ( ~ -e)
Meaning: leather, cloth
Russian meaning: кожа, ткань
Turkic: *gȫn
Mongolian: *kön-ǯile
Korean: *kằńằm
Comments: -ằ- in MKor. is probably a result of assimilation ( < *kòńằm). Vovin 1993 compares MKor. kằńằm 'material, cloth' with Jpn. *kìnú, on which see rather {*k`i̯ùńí}; see also Robbeets 2000, 109.
