Comments: EAS 65-66, KW 110, ТМС 1, 272, VEWT 200 (but the Kor. form čičči-da, despite SKE 37, hardly belongs here), АПиПЯЯ 285; hardly justified is Doerfer's criticism in TMN 4, 254-255. A Western isogloss. For the Turk. forms meaning 'snake' cf. alternatively TM *sulama / *salama 'snake' (ТМС 2, 57) - if the latter is not borrowed from Russ. dial. саломея 'a mythical snake'.
