Comments:EAS 154, Poppe 107 (Turk.-Mong.). Щербак 1997, 131 treats the Mong. word as borrowed from Turk., which is hardly the case. In the Turk.-Mong. area the root could have interacted with *ā̀ŋo `right' (sometimes also acquiring the meaning 'front') q. v.; note also the common Mong. derivative eŋge-sge `rouge, red paint' ( < `face skin').
