Lezghian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Lezghian: *kʷɨlṭ-/*ḳʷɨlt-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 temple 2 cheek 3 head 4 skull
Rutul: q̇ɨlta-n 1 (Khn.)
Tsakhur: ḳutel 1
Kryz: ḳʷaṭin 2
Budukh: ḳuṭun 2
Archi: karṭi 3
Udi: ? k:ant:az 4
Comment: Cf. also Tsakh. (Tsakh.) ḳurṭel 'temple'. In Rut. q̇- is due to contamination with q̇ul 'head'; the Udi form is somewhat obscure phonetically (maybe we should rather list here Ud. ḳodo-χ 'forehead' ?). All languages show suffixed forms (with *-n in Rut., Kryz. and Bud., *-l in Tsakh. and *-j in Arch.). 3d class in Kryz. and Bud., but 4th class in Rut., Tsakh. and Arch.

Proto-North Caucasian: *kɨ̄lṭwV
Meaning: some flat part of body
Proto-Nakh: *kōrta
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ḳortV (~ -a-)
Proto-Tsezian: *kɨṭʷa / *kʷɨṭa
Proto-Lak: č̣anṭi
Proto-Lezghian: *kʷɨlṭ-/*ḳʷɨlt-
Proto-Khinalug: ṭuḳun
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The semantic shifts between "temple of head" ( > "head"), "cheek" and "buttock" are rather usual, but it is not quite clear which part of body was originally denoted by the root. The Khin. form could be borrowed from Shakh-Dagh languages (cf. Bud. ḳuṭun), but this is not very probable because of metathesis in Khin.
