Can Keywords be copied/transferred “backwards?”

I added Keywords to many jpg files when I should have added them to their scanned source files (tifs). Is there an efficient way to copy them from the jpg versions to their tif “originals?” Except for their suffixes, they are identically named. Obviously the keywords assigned to any one jpg can be dragged to its tif version (or to any any other image file). But I have about nine thousand of them, each with its own set of keywords, and each with its own tif source file (with no keywords). Is there a way to automate this? Is there a way to tell the jpgs to transfer their metadata to other files with the same names (minus prefix) or to any other files?

I’m working in Bridge3 MacOSX.
