PT form *quš. Although lost in Chuvash, it may be preserved in Chuvash for duck: kăvakal, which could potentially be reconstructed as "blue+bird". Sakha kötör can be broken down as "fly+er"; it preserves the form kus to mean "duck". Reconstruction of final * depends on analysis of the *l~š alternation.
