Yenisseian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Yenisseian: *bVʔĺ
Meaning: thick
Ket: bɔʔĺ, pl. bɔĺeŋ5
Arin: berga(r), berik 'big, very'
Comments: ССЕ 213. Helimski (КС 248) suggests that the Arin word is borrowed from Selk. wǝrqɨ 'big', which is somewhat dubious. Werner (1, 140) acknowledges the reconstruction *bVʔĺ on the basis of the Ket form, but says: "wenn man aber dieses ket. Wort mit ar. birka, ber / berke 'groß' zusammenstellen könnte, wäre PJ <*boʔʎ / *bǝʔʎ> 'dick' möglich'.
