Comments: EAS 108, KW 440, Poppe 117, Мудрак Дисс. 91, Miller 1970, 129, JOAL 119. In Turkic one has to suppose a dissimilation (*sīĺč < *čīĺč; cf. Turkm. čīš-, perhaps preserving an archaism). PA *č`ī́ĺč`u may be a partial reduplication, or else have a suffixed *-č`V (*č`ī́ĺu-č`V; cf. Mong. čili-, perhaps reflecting an original simple stem). A possibility of reconstructing *č`ĭ́jĺu-č`V should be also considered (see above on the Turkic reflexes).
