Kazakh:alq-ɨn- 'to get short of breath, chafe' (?)
Karakalpak:alq-ɨn- 'to get short of breath'
Comments:EDT 135, 137, 138-139; VEWT 17. Reflexes in modern languages are not quite secure. The reflexive form alkɨn- 'weaken' (but note the difference in meanings in R and in modern dictionaries) may be derived both from *alk- and from *alɨk- 'to deteriorate, disintegrate' (EDT 138), which belongs rather to *Al 'silly, weak', alɨɣ 'bad, weak, wicked' (in any case, cannot be morphologically identified with *alk-), thus modern languages may exhibit a contamination.
