Comments:KW 85, EAS 174 (with several misquoted forms), TMN 1, 328. A Western isogloss. Some rather strange variants coexist within Mong. and TM, and archaic interborrowing is not excluded; it is also possible that the root should be reconstructed as *dible, to account for the development in Mong. Another possibility is comparing the Mong. forms (at least part of them) with Evk. lipêre `a k. of winter clothes', Tuva čüvür `trousers' (?).
