Oldest attested form is bakïr; this is found in most branches and is likely the proto-form.

Forms like *yes are likely form an early borrowing from Tocharian *yäs (Tocharian A wäs, Tocharian B yasa). This is a cognate of Latin aurum "gold". See also Mongolian зэс ᠵᠡᠰ, Moksha Mordvin śerä.

Forms like mis are borrowed from Persian مس.
