Comments: EDT 22, 29, ЭСТЯ 1, 92 (together with *iāčɨ- 'bitter'), Stachowski 29. Turk. > WMong. ačuɣ 'wages, rent' (L 8). In modern languages the root tends to be confused with *iāčɨ- 'bitter, bitterness' (v. sub *p`i̯ā́č`o), thus the Oghuz voicing may be a result of secondary contamination and not due to original vowel length; but the two roots are rather well distinguished in Old Turkic, see EDT ibid.
