PT form *yaz-/yaŕ- likely meant to carve or engrave. Compare with Hungarian ír 'to write'. Forms like biči- are borrowed from Mongolian бичих ᠪᠢᠴᠢᠬᠦ or from Old Turkic bitig "writing, book". This ultimately derives from Syriac ܦܬܩܐ (pitqā) "document, certificate", from Greek πιττάκιον "writing tablet".
