Sammalahti's version: FU *i/eki/äni
K. Redei's notes: *ik3n
K. Reshetnikov's notes: Despite Rédei, the Ob-Ugric form belongs here (not to the etymological group listed in URAET 44); for its semantics ('chin') cf. the meaning 'jaw' alongside with 'gum' in Hun. In spite of semantics of Permic *aŋ 'gum, palate', I would reject Rédei's hypothesis that it is also a reflex of the FU word in question, but phonetically influenced by Permic *aŋ 'jaw' (apparently belonging to the etymology presented in URAET 683); the situation seems to be simpler - we can suppose that the Permic word meaning 'gum, palate' is historically identic with *aŋ 'jaw', being a result of a secondary semantical development (cf. the semantical correlation observed in Ugric).
