> However, there are lexical correspondences between western Uralic and
> Germanic which have no further etymologies in either language family, e.g.
> Germ. *saiwa- ~ Samic *saajvê 'fresh water', Finnic *kauka- 'long' ~ Germ.
> *hauha- 'high', Germ. *ailda- 'fire' ~ Samic *aaltê-nkê-ssê 'lightning'.
> But all of these can be explained as borrowings in one direction or the
> other, so there is no special reason to asssume separate borrowing from
> some substrate language in these cases.
