EtymologyEdit

Disputed, possibly from Proto-Uralic. Two different comparisons have been proposed, both with their own problems:

Abondolo (1992)[3] considers the latter comparison "slightly less unconvincing" (and considers hely (place) to be the Hungarian cognate to Samoyedic instead). Koivulehto (2001)[4] however has etymologized the Finnic and Samic words for 'point' as early loans from Indo-European, unrelated to Hungarian.
