Comments: ССЕ 308. Pump. dul (Кл.) "child" is in reality a Yug form. The Ket and Kott. plural is formed as a compound of *ʒVl with *gǝʔt 'children' (q.v.). Werner (2, 219) reluctantly admits that the Kott. form can be related with Ket and Yug and says: "sollte man eher PJ *d'ǝl vermuten" - however, his *d'ǝl ( = our *ǯǝl) would have yielded Yug d'ɨl, not dɨl. The reconstruction *ʒ- (with the reflexes Ket, Yug d- : Kott. d́- : Ar., Pump. k-, quite parallel to those of *c- > Ket, Yug t-: Kott. h-/t-: Ar., Pump. k- (x)-) is therefore inevitable, and there is no need to derive the Arin and Pumpokol forms from PY *qar- 'grandchild'.
