Yenisseian etymology :

Proto-Yenisseian: *t[e]mbVĺ-
Meaning: root
Kottish: thempul, *thēmpul, pl. -pulaŋ; асс. tɨjbúl (М., Сл., Срсл.); tujbúl, kempala (sic!) (Кл.)
Arin: t́ēmbirgaŋ (Кл.); t́ēmbiŕaŋ (М., Сл.); tenbir (Лоск.)
Comments: ССЕ 283. Werner (2, 317) analyses this Kott.-Arin isogloss as a plural form of *čīǯ- 'root' + *bul 'foot': this is hardly possible, since: a) the reflex of *čīǯ- is known in Kott. as i-čičan; b) the reflex of *bul is Arin pil, not pir (or bir). The word may still be a compound of some sort, but the components are so far unclear
