Comments: ССЕ 227. Not quite clear is the relationship of Pump. (Сл., Срсл.) kinčidin, (Кл.) kɨčidin "cold" (Срсл. n. "стужа"): the Pump. form points rather to *-s-, but a palatalisation of *-t- before a front vowel is also not excluded. Werner 1, 475 - misquoting my reconstruction (*kǝte instead of *gǝte).
