Comments: The words cited for meanings 1 and 2 are only some of the anatomical words containing *ondo 'joint'. Meaning 3 (also stem, vine) occurs in compounds like madari-ondo 'pear tree', sagarr-ondo 'apple tree', mahats-ondo 'grapevine'. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish this word from *ondo 'side, bottom' (q.v.) and *ɦonda-r̄ 'sand', and Romance hondo (< Lat. fundum) 'bottom'. These words have probably merged and blended in Bsq to some extent.
