Comments: EAS 98, Poppe 34, 67 (Turk.-Tung.), АПиПЯЯ 53, 280, Дыбо 5, Лексика 234. In Japanese, unfortunately, only Ryukyu forms are attested, which probably underwent an influence of the PJ root *nǝmp- 'to stretch, lengthen'; still, the origin of the Ryukyu stem from this PA root seems probable. The Kor. form is morphologically = PT *bojnak < *mojńo-k`V; cf. also MKor. mǝ̀ŋ-'ǝ́i 'yoke, harness' with preservation of nasal. The TM form also reflects velar suffixation (*mojn-ga-).
