The word initial consonants are not palatalized. So it's [sokk]. Declination: sokk - soki - sokki, meaning 'sock'. But there's also: sokk - soku - sokku, meaning 'billy-goat', 'buck'.

Ei või iial teada. Samas ei tea me, kas meil üldse mingite uurali šamaanidega midagi ühist ongi.

You'll never know. Thereby we don't know if we have anything in common at all with those Uralic shamans.
