Comments: EAS 123, KW 83, Владимирцов 366, Poppe 78 (Turk.-Mong.), Цинциус 1984, 83, Miller 1970, 130, JOAL 121, Street 1980, 286-287, АПиПЯЯ 75. Despite TMN 3, 391, Щербак 1997, 135. borrowing in Mong. from Turk. is excluded. One cannot exclude a possibility that we are dealing with two different roots here: cf. the distinction in Turkic, strange loss of *-b- in Tungus *kala-n, and another Kor.-Jpn. root for 'vessel, container': MKor. kari 'fish pot, basket for catching fish', OJ ke (PJ *ka-i) 'vessel, container' (see Whitman 1985, 160).
