Written Mongolian: boda (L 108)
Middle Mongolian: bodo 1, 2 (SH)
Khalkha: bod
Buriat: bodo
Kalmuck: bodǝ
Ordos: bodo
Comments: KW 48. Mong. > Evk. bodo. The root should be distinguished from *bodu 'cattle'. Philosophical connotations may have been acquired under the influence of Sanskr. bhūta, but a direct loan from Sanskr. is hardly credible, despite Sukhebaatar 40.
