Comments: JLTT 779 (Martin gives also the meaning 'bend the neck', obviously deriving the form from unag- 'hang around the neck' - but, as far as we know, this meaning is not attested anywhere, and the relationship is not evident at all). Accent reconstruction is not clear (both high and low tone variants are attested).
