English meaning : ashes, lime [L.Zhou]
Russian meaning[s]: 1) зола, пепел; 2) известь; 3) пепельный, серый (цвет); 4) разбить; 5) 10-е число (в телеграммах)
Comments: Standard Sino-Viet. is khôi (with irregular kh-). Viet. vôi may go back to PAA *Cǝ-pVr 'lime' and thus is probably just a fortuitous resemblance.
