Mongolian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Mongolic *sün/*üsün, compare Buryat һүн (hün), Kalmyk үсн (üsn), East Yugur hsün, compare Daur suu.

Connections with Proto-Turkic *sǖt have been proposed (compare Turkish süt), but the forms cannot be explained through usual loanword correspondences.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

сүү (süü) (Mongolian spelling ᠰᠦᠨ (sün)); (hidden-n declension)
