Many parts of the Kül Tegin and Bilgä Kagan inscriptions are almost identical with each other. Although most parts of these inscriptions are well understood, some parts like the letter group ïKIDmz in the second sentence of KT S 6 and in the last sentence of BK N 4 are not so. The letter group ïKIDmz has been read and interpreted in various ways. The author regards ïKIDmz as a spelling error (or an alternative spelling) for KIDmz and suggests that it can be read as akïdmaz ‘they do not become generous / openhanded’. As a hapax legomenon, the verb akïd- ‘to become generous / openhanded’ is analysed as akï ‘generous, openhanded’ + -d- ‘a suffix making a denominal verb’.
This paper attempts to give new explanation for the expression agrïp yok bol- occurring in 9th line of the south side of the Bilgä Kagan Inscription. After a thorough survey of former research and several Chinese sources, the authors came to the conclusion that this expression must be a euphemistic expression for being beheaded in a battle. The authors found also that kog säŋün was Guo Yingjie 郭英傑. In sum, the sentence in question is to be read as ulug oglum agrïp yok bolča kog säŋünüg balbal tikä bertim ‘When my oldest son died of a disease, I readily erected General Kog as a balbal (for him).’ The expression agrïp yok bol- is to be regarded as a euphemistic expression for being beheaded in a battle.
