Notes

Dybo (2014) has Long (瀧), which she reconstructs as *dā-grjəj "right," derived from a Turkic *dogro s.m. This, however, goes against the characters' Late Han Chinese transcription, LH *dɑ-gɨ, that is provided by Schuessler (2014). Moreover, the Chinese gloss is Xian (賢) “worthy” not "right."
