Comments: KW 267, MGCD 298, 492. Mong. > MTurk. mürän 'river' (TMN 1, 506, Щербак 1997, 206). The MMong. form in LHa - merän - is certainly not enough to reconstruct PM *meren, as attempted by Doerfer (TMN 1, 507) (cf. -ö- or -ü- in other sources). This is obviously done in order to attack the traditional etymology of the word, which nevertheless still holds.
