Yenisseian etymology :

Proto-Yenisseian: *sisa(l)-
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: lungs, liver
Kottish: šičātn, pl. -aŋ 'lungs', šičil, pl. -aŋ 'liver'; Ass. (Бол.) šišatɨn 'lungs'
Arin: šišali (Лоск.) 'lungs', sal (reduction < *sVsal?) 'liver'
Comments: ССЕ 275. Not quite clear is the position of Werner: he accepts the reconstruction *sisa(l)- on p. 2, 438, but on the next page (2, 439) treats the same words as a compound *si + *sil (?), lumping together all the forms and also adding all those analyzed under *seŋ.
