It may be worth noting that while the first three items are indubitably Iranian, with closely matching forms in Ossetic, the word jajca (<jayca>) is as indubitably 100% Slavic (plural of *jajce, diminutive of *jaje < PSl *a:jo- 'egg').

After conducting a quick internet search, I could only come up with a few
words from the list:
daban horz (good day)
dan = aqua (water)
fus = oves (sheep)
jayca = oua (eggs)

As well as the following source:
Julius NEMETH, Eine Woerterliste der Jassen, der Ungarlaendischen Alanen,
Berlin 1959 (in: Abhandlungen der Deutschen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu
Berlin, Jahrgang 1958, Nr. 4).
