Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The PL form is reduplicated (with the reduplication well preserved in Ag.). PN has a regular -r- before the diminutive *-iḳ; -r in Bacb. ʕür is probably an analogical back-formation (or a result of merger with PN *ōr 'pit', see below). The Avar word may be alternatively compared with PN *ōr 'pit' (Chech. or, obl. ōra-, Ing. or); a borrowing Nakh < Avar is also not excluded. However, Abayev (1989, 95) is certainly wrong in supposing that Chech., Av. or is borrowed from Osset. wärm 'pit, cellar' (a word of Iranian origin, borrowed in Georg. ormo).

Ket: baŋuĺ5,6, pl. baŋɨĺaŋ5 (Werner 1, 105: báŋoĺ)
Yug: baŋɨl5,6, pl. baŋɨlɨŋ5
Kottish: ol, pl. ōlaŋ
Comments: ССЕ 197. Ket and Yug reflect a compound with *baʔŋ 'earth'; Kott. ol is also present in ol-tēg 'swamp'. Werner 1, 105 treats the second component as = *ʔoʔoL 'container' (q.v.), but separates the Kottish word. Elsewhere (2, 48) it is compared with Ket ɔʔĺ 'hull, suffusion' (see *ʔoʔl) - for quite obscure reasons.
