Comments: ССЕ 226. Ket kъ̄ńe, Yug kъ̄ń, Kott kinig reflect a compound *gǝʔn + xiʔG "light + day". One should also note Ket kʌńiŋ "people (name of the Kets in "bears' language")" - lit., "the light ones" ( > Selk. qɔ̄nnɨŋ "Ket", see Helimski КС 241). Werner 1, 474 (without reconstruction), 2, 257 (with some hesitation about Kott. tegan).
