Comments:EDT 872, VEWT 202, ЭСТЯ 4, 196-197. Except Uzb., Uygh., Chuv. and possibly Yak. all languages actually reflect *jẹp- (*jip-); the Inlaut stop may be a result of secondary gemination, or reflect a merger with some other root. Original voiced *-b- ( > -v-), however, is well preserved in the derivative *jẹbiĺ(č) 'wet' (Karaim jüvüš, Tat. jüwiš, Bashk. jĭvĭš). Turk. > Kalm. ǯī- 'durchnäßt werden' (KW 114; although phonology is somewhat strange: one would rather expect Kalm. ǯiw-).
