Proto-Altaic: *č`ámo ( ~ -e-)
Meaning: a k. of tree
Russian meaning: вид дерева
Turkic: *čAm
Mongolian: *čöme-sü ?
Korean: *čămh
Japanese: *támú-kui
Comments: SKE 47. It is worth noting that the Korean word also means 'sesame' or 'anise' (in compounds, see KED 1570, 1571): this may be in fact a merger with the reflex of PA *č`i̯umu 'seed, cone' (q. v.).
