\data\alt\turcet
Proto-Turkic: *bura (?)
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: soul of a sacrificial animal (horse)
Russian meaning: душа жертвенного животного (коня)
Khakassian: pura 'picture of a male maral on a shaman drum'
Oyrat: pura (dial.) 'sacrificial animal'
Comments: The Oyr. word is usually identified with bura 'camel' < PT *bugra; the absence of vowel length (*būra would be normally expected) is, however, baffling and could indicate a different origin of the Oyr. and Khak. words. Cf. perhaps also Yak. burgunas 'young cow, cow without calves'.
