Protoform: *č̣iq̇ʷa(ra)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 quail 2 sparrow 3 bird
Avar: žužuḳ (RAS) 2
Andian language: č̣aq̇ʷara 1
Akhvakh: č̣ĩq̇a 2,3
Karata: č̣ʷaʔara 1
Comments: The Av. word is attested in the Russian-Avar dictionary; it is reduplicated, but otherwise phonologically regular. In Proto-Andian an assimilation (*ž- > č̣-) had occurred; note also the irregular preservation of labialised q̇ʷ (which should have passed into -ḳ- like in Av.), and the irregular nasalisation in Akhv. All these features must be explained by the expressive character of the root.oot.
