K. Reshetnikov's notes: Not LO, but LU (i.e. LL)! Cf. Komi un'e 'aunt' - can't the Mansi form with -u- be a Komi loan? Note the similarity between the Komi and Selk. forms (a secondary contact relation can't be excluded). On the other hand, NeO n'eje 'mother's younger sister' (mentioned in UEW as a cognate of the Uralic words in question) is unclear - it doesn't correspond to Selk. with regard to vocalism. Contrary to UEW, Permic *an'V > Komi Pm., Wi. an' 'Schwiegermutter (der Frau), Mutter des Mannes', Vg. an' 'Frau', Udm. Ye. an'ɨ 'Hanfgarbe', Mans. UK ȫn', Pe. ān', Ss. ān'-ēk̥a 'Grossmutter mütterlicherseits', Hun. anya 'Mutter', (dial.) 'Schwiegermutter', -ány (=ān') in le-ány 'Tochter, Mädchen', literally 'small woman' (le- < Ugr. *lVjV 'klein, jung') and apparently Mord. E -an'a in niz-an'a 'mother-in-law', M an'a-ka 'elder sister' should be kept apart from the forms listed above (see URAET 1802). Besides, Komi Ud. un'e 'Tante' is also likely to belong to another etymon (URAET 1801).
