Comments:ССЕ 197. Werner 2, 48 (without the Kott. form). Kott. d́era / d́ira was compared in КС 215 with Ket. tuĺn 'lizard', but this was phonetically irregular (one had to suppose a variation *c- / *ʒ-, otherwise unattested). Werner seems unsure about the attribution of d́era: in 1, 286 he still compares it with tuĺn (see *tulVn); in 1, 415 he proposes to compare it with Ket ʌʔĺ 'frog' - not abandoning, however, the comparison of ʌʔĺ with Arin kere 'frog', proposed in ССЕ 295, and thus has to reconstruct an uncomprehensible variation <*ǝʔʎ / *(k)ǝʎǝ / *(d')ǝʎǝ>. There remains, however, a possibility to compare Kott. d́era / d́ira 'lizard' with Ket. ɔʔl 'worm': except for a not quite clear vowel correspondence the etymology seems quite plausible.
