Proto-North Caucasian: *ś_wōɫV

Meaning: a hollow tube
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *š:ʷVlV
Proto-Tsezian: *šelu A (~š:-)
Proto-Lezghian: *sol (~s:-)
Notes: The comparison seems plausible; the semantic development (*'tube' > a) 'horn'; b) 'gullet') is rather usual in NC.

Protoform: *š:ʷVlV
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 pipe 2 tubular bone 3 arm (from hand to elbow)
Avar: šulu (Ants.) 1
Andian language: tom-š:il 2
Chamalal: na-s:ul 2
Tindi: han-š:al 3
Karata: hani-š:el 2
Comments: The Andian languages have preserved the root only in compounds: *honi-š:ʷVlV "marrow (brain)"+"pipe" ( = 'tubular bone') or *tomV-š:ʷVlV (And. tomš:il) with a not quite clear first component (see the discussion under *tamHV 'sinew').

Proto-Lezghian: *sol (~s:-)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 gullet 2 top (of boot)
Rutul: lɨs 1
Kryz: sɨl 2
Comment: 4th class in both languages. Despite metathesis in Rut., the comparison is quite probable: cf. the external evidence and note that the meanings "gullet, throat" and "top of boot" are sometimes interchangeable (cf., e.g. Lezg. q:uχ meaning both).

Meaning: 1 hole 2 cave 3 make holes, dig holes 4 hollow, gully
Bizkaian: zulo, zilo, zillo 1, zulotu, zilotu 3, (Aulestia) sulo 1
Gipuzkoan: zulo 1
High Navarrese: zulo 1, ziloka 2, xillotu 3, (Goizueta) zolo 1

Baztanese: ziloka 4
Zuberoan: zilo, xilo 1, ziloka 2, zila(tü) 3
Roncalese: xillo 1, xillotu 3
Comments: The diminutive/expressive forms xilo, xillo, etc. have become usual in ZBR and RNC. As noted by Mitxelena, medieval place names have only zulho or zulo, thus the oldest form is postulated to have been *suɫɦo. This is a component of compounds such as (GIP) ipurt-zulo 'anus', eztar-zulo 'pharynx', (ZBR) südür-xílo 'nostril', etc. Cf. Lezgi sulu-r 'throat'.
