Comments: EDT 421-422, 423, VEWT 98, D-T 97. At least part of the forms may ultimately have a Chinese source (MC ʒ̣ạ̈m 'slander'). Cf. also čaman 'lazy horse, dog'; Tur. čamura jat- 'to decline from paying a debt' (slang; lit. 'to lie down in dirt' - perhaps a reanalysis based on the analogy with čamur 'dirt', cf. also čamur (metaph.) 'low, humble').
