Proto-Turkic: *iler-
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: to be dimly visible
Russian meaning: быть смутно видимым
Karakhanid: iler- (MK)
Oyrat: eles 'silhouette, ghost', eleste- 'be dimly visible'
Comments: EDT 150. The form attested in MK cannot be a mongolism (primarily for semantic reasons); however, Mong. ilere- also cannot be a Turkism, being rather derived from Mong. ile. Modern Turkic forms - Tuva ilere-, Oyr. iler- 'to become visible' are obvious late mongolisms.
