According to Cygankin, the deleted final (-v) (followed by -о- (-o-)) reappears in genitive, dative and causative in singular and nominative in plural: келувонь, келувонди, келувонкса, келуфт (keluvonʹ, keluvondi, keluvonksa, keluft),[3] later he gives several singular forms without the reappearance of the -v element, it, however, always reappears in plural (with devoicing: /v/ > /f/).
