Comments: Av. paradigm B (raʎdá-l, raʎáda-l; Chad. ratádu-l, ratáda-l). Cf. also Cham. Gig. reʎa, Bagv. Tlond. relha. Av. > Inkh., Tsez., Gin., Bezht., Gunz. raʎad 'sea'. Arch. ʎat (erg. ʎet:e) 'sea' is also most probably an old loan from Avar, although loss of ra- is not quite clear (perhaps the early loanword first changed regularly into *daʎat:, and then with reduction changed to *ƛat: > *ʎat:).
