Proto: *ćEppV
> Nostratic: > Nostratic
English meaning: fingertip; to pinch
German meaning: Prise, Fingerspitze; kneifen
Mari (Cheremis): cǝwešte- (KB), ćǝ̑wǝ̑šte- (U) 'kneipen, kneifen', čǝ̑wǝ̑štala- 'kneifen, befingern' ??
Udmurt (Votyak): ćepi̮ĺi (URS) 'щипок, щепоть', čepi̮ĺt- (S) 'kneifen', ćepị̑ĺtị̑- (G) 'kneifen, zwicken' ?
Komi (Zyrian): ćepe̮ĺ (S), ćepe̮.ĺ (P) 'eine Fingerspitze voll, Prise', ćepe̮ĺt- (S), ćepe̮.ĺt- (P) 'kneifen', ćepe̮r (Ud.) 'Zwick; Kniff', ćepe̮rt- (Ud.) 'zwicken, kneifen', će.pĺal- (PO) 'kneifen, rupfen' ?
Hungarian: csip (csípëk, dial. csípok) 'kneifen; kneipen, zwicken', (dial.) csíp 'ein Bündel Hanf' ?
K. Reshetnikov's notes: For Mari, cf. Chuv. čǝbǝt- 'to pinch', čǝpt-ǝm, čǝpk-ǝm 'a pinch, thimbleful', which is "phonetically strange" (ALTET 298, TURCET 444). An irregular change in its shape (-b- instead of expected -m-) may be due just to Mari influence. Note that the Mari word hardly can be borrowed from Chuv.; Mari *-w- as a counterpart of reflexes of Uralc *-pp- is not a reason for doubting Uralic origin of the word (cf., for instance, URAET 21, 92).
