Comments:KW 12, Владимирцов 361, EAS 111, Poppe 81, Лексика 229. Despite TMN 2, 55-56, Щербак 1997, 103 Mong. is not < Turk. The TM reflexes are weak: the Evk. form is semantically difficult, while Manchu arGan may well be borrowed < Mong.; however, the parallel form ar-sun is hard to explain as a loan (no similar form is attested in Mong.).
