North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *Hč̣wǟrV̄
Meaning: grey, yellow
Proto-Nakh: *ʡāč̣V- ( ~ -ǯ-)
Proto-Tsezian: *ʔeč̣V- (~ħ-)
Proto-Lak: č̣aIj-
Proto-Lezghian: *č̣ʷerɨ-
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. In PTs we would rather expect *č̣V(r)-, but rules of root structure development are often violated in adjectives (because of active class prefixation / suffixation); otherwise all correspondences are regular. The root must have denoted some light colour (yellowish, greyish).
