Comments: Владимирцов 322, Poppe 18, 52, Цинциус 1984а, 113, ОСНЯ 1, 327-328, АПиПЯЯ 53, 284, Дыбо 9, Лексика 145. Mong. is hardly < Turk. (although it is possible, see Щербак 1997, 142). In Korean we have a case of *s-prefixation in body parts (see also under *i̯op`érV, *p`èjńé); note that MKor. kòtằrkái 'tail strap' < Mong. Cf. also Turk. *Kuduskan 'tail strap' (ЭСТЯ 6, 182-183) = WMong. qudusqa (VEWT 297, KW 195, Лексика 554); *Kudu-muč / -mčak 'tail bone' (ЭСТЯ 6, 215-216).
