Yenisseian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Yenisseian: *baʔt-
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: knee
Ket: batpuĺ5 (Imb.), pl. batpuĺǝŋ5,6; baʔt (Werner 1, 108) 'joint, knee', bátiŋ pl. 'joints of reindeer'
Yug: batpɨl5, pl. batpɨlɨŋ6; baʔt (Werner 1, 108) 'joint, knee'
Kottish: pulpatap (Бол.) "metatarsus"
Arin: karam-pat (Лоск.) "elbow"; (Лоск.) patas "knee"
Comments: ССЕ 206. Cf. also Ket bātkup1 'bend (of a river)' (the second part - kup - is not quite clear). Ket and Kottish reflect a compound with *bul 'foot, leg' q.v. Werner 1, 108-109 gives a completely folk-etymological analysis of bat-puĺ as bat "forehead, face" + būĺ "leg": it is the stranger because on the same page he adds the attested plain stem baʔt 'joint, knee' and bátiŋ 'joints' - clearly distinct from bat / bāt3 'face' q.v.
