Lezghian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Lezghian: *ʔiχ(:)e ( ~ -ɨ)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 to enter 2 to come 3 to go
Agul: χi- 3 (Bursh.)
Rutul: =ɨrɨχ 3 (imper.)
Kryz: -χä(ri) 2
Budukh: -χa(ri) 2
Comment: In Ag. the root is also used with different preverbs as part of the suppletive paradigm of the verbs 'to come' and 'to enter', for building the infinitive and aorist forms (h-aχi-s 'to come', aχi-s 'to enter'). In Kryz. and Bud. the root is used only within a compound with PL *ʔiš:e- (q.v.), in the present and prohibitive forms (Kryz. ʕuš-χä-ri, proh. ʕumäš-χä 'to come', Bud. ʕaš-χa-ri, proh. ʕamaš-χar 'to come, to enter'). Cf. perhaps also Bud. q̇-a=χ- 'to find' (*'come upon').

    There is some confusion in PL between this root and *ʔiχ:e- 'to carry' (q.v.): they are, in fact, opposed only in Rutul - but even here they can be viewed as reflecting different Ablaut grades of a single root (for the motion verb cf. also Rut. qI-aχIɨ- (term.) 'to go away' /with pharyngealization on analogy with the suppletive dur. stem qI-uʁIu- < PL *ʔiq:Iʷä- q.v./, imper. qɨ=rɨχ). In Agul the meaning 'to carry, bring' is typical for the Richa dialect (χ-as), while the meaning 'to come' is typical for Burshag (χi-s), where the meaning 'to carry' is rendered as wa-χi-s with a preverb. External evidence, however, suggests that this situation is due to confusion of similar PEC roots: *=īχ_V 'to carry' and *=iχ_wV 'to go, come'.
