Comments: KW 23. Mong. > Evk. aŋir etc., see Doerfer MT 68; > Yak. aŋɨr 'выпь', Oyr. aŋɨr 'варнавка', Tuva aŋgɨr, Kirgh. aŋɣar etc. (despite TMN 2, 129 those forms cannot go back to *aŋgɨrt and must be recognized as borrowings). It is also interesting to note WMong. aǯir, Khalkha aǯir 'teal, Anas crecca' (L 62), possibly < *adir < *aŋdir, with a different (old dialectal?) development of the medial cluster.
