Comments: ЭСТЯ 2, 37-38, VEWT 57. The root should be distinguished from *bāgɨr 'liver' (although there may occur secondary mergers, cf. Tat. bawur 'slope'). It has no relationship (suggested in ЭСТЯ) to Mong. bajir 'place' (derived from baji- 'to be' and borrowed in Uzb. bajir 'accustomed to local conditions', Kirgh. bajɨr 'attachment to a place', Nogh. bajɨr 'proper'); intermediate (not quite clear) cases are Chag. bajɨr 'plain, desert' (Pav. C.), Az. bajɨr 'the external part of the inhabited area as opposed to the internal part', Khal. bajir 'uncultivated (place)'.
