Proto-Yenisseian: *ʔapV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: hotness; sweat
Ket: ā; a:ŋ "hot"; a:ŋgǝt3 "to warm up"; (Кастр.) ābataʁan, (КРС) abataʁan "to sweat"
Yug: āp; āfɛ1 "hot(ly)"; afɨŋ5 "hot"; afɨŋet́ "to warm up"; (Кастр.) abbat́aʁan "to sweat"
Kottish: fal, phal "hot, warm"; pala (Бол.) "hotness"; apīkŋ, pl. apīkŋán "sweat"; apīkŋ uganaŋ "to sweat"; Ass. palá (М., Кл.), pfóltu (Сл., Срсл.), paltu (Кл.) "hot"
Arin: pentu (Лоск.) "hotness"
Comments: ССЕ 182. The Pump. (Срсл.) form afam "hot" is in reality Yug. Kottish and Arin display a not quite regular reduction of Anlaut in the derivative *ʔapV-l "warm, hot". Ket, Yug and Kottish reflect a Common Yenisseian compound *ʔapV ʔǝqan- 'to sweat', lit. 'to boil hotness'. Werner 1, 92-93 *aphǝ.

Notes : One more vocalic auslaut here, this time accompanied by the suffix *-a-. The gap was filled in most dialects, either by -v- (in Kui, cf. similar treatment of verbal roots with vocalic auslaut) or by -y- (in Kuwi). The form puva in Kuwi_Isr must be borrowed from Kui, especially since the usual semantics in Kuwi is 'embers', not 'spark'.
