"Lith. stum̃bras and Ru. zubr point to *tsomb(h )- and *dzomb(h )" respectively (GK). "A connection with the root *ǵombh- of PSl. *zǫbъ, Latv. zùobs v. 'tooth' cannot be ruled out, but it is possible that we are dealing with a migratory term, cf. Osset. dombaj 'bison'." (RD), "Lith. stum̃bras and Ru. zubr point to *tsomb(h )- and *dzomb(h )" respectively (GK). "A connection with the root *ǵombh- of PSl. *zǫbъ, Latv. zùobs v. 'tooth' cannot be ruled out, but it is possible that we are dealing with a migratory term, cf. Osset. dombaj 'bison'." (RD), "Lith. stum̃bras and Ru. zubr point to *tsomb(h )- and *dzomb(h )" respectively (GK). Compare Ru. izúbr, izjúbr 'red deer' and OPrus. wissambs' 'aurochs', which appear to continue *uidzomb(h )- (GK). On this basis, GK posits "a non-IE element *dzomb(h ) or *dzond(h ) that could be prefixed by an element *wi-". Concerning this prefix, note also the relation between OPrus. wissambs' 'aurochs' and Latv. sum̃brs 'aurochs, bison': "Young connects the element wis- with OPr. wissene 'wild rosemary' and OHG wisa 'meadow'." (RD)., "Lith. stum̃bras and Ru. zubr point to *tsomb(h )- and *dzomb(h )" respectively (GK). "A connection with the root *ǵombh- of PSl. *zǫbъ, Latv. zùobs v.
