Hungarian and Eskimo-Aleut

ALFRÉD TÓTH : HUNGARIAN AND ESKIMO-ALEUT — with Paleo-Siberian Cognates

Proto-Eskimo *ilak∂- “to be part or one of”

Sumerian ri (475x: ED IIIb, Old Akkadian, Ur III, Early Old Babylonian, Old

Babylonian) wr. RI; ru “to lay down, to cast, to set in place; to lean

on”

Proto-Yupik-Sirenikski *iγvaR- “to appear”

Sumerian rib (62x: ED IIIb, Old Babylonian) wr. rib; ri-ba “(to be) surpassing,

outstanding; (to be) strong, massive”. The root-enlarging elements –k

and –ŋ are based solely on the Mańśi forms rèγ and rei and are
