PT form *ǖs? Most Turkic languages have a form that is either borrowed from Mongolian or is a eastern Eurasian Wanderwort. C.f. Mongolian шилүүс/ᠰᠢᠯᠦᠭᠦᠰᠦ, Manchu ᠰᡳᠯᡠᠨ (silun), Korean 스라소니 (seurasoni), Chinese 猞猁猻 (Mandarin shēlìsūn, shèlìsūn). A number of words for worm appear to be related as well, possibly due to a process of taboo avoidance.

A few Sayan languages use aldï "sable", which appears to be the result of euphemism or taboo avoidance (Ragagnin 2009: 230-231).

Kazakh and Kuu-Kiži have secondary forms (irbis, ilbiyin) that may be related to Finnic *ilbes and Saamic *ëlpës. This Kazakh form refers to female lynx.

Western Oghuz has forms from Persian وشق.
