"A European word for 'lynx'." (GK) "It is difficult to reconstruct a proto-form beyond Germanic. All potential cognates show some kind of irregular sound correspondence: the laryngeal of Baltic, the r of Slavic, the n of Greek, the g of Irish. Perhaps, these irregularities result from multiple tabooistic distortions. The alternative is to assume repeated borrowing from a non-Indo-European language (or languages)." (GK)
