Comments: Av. paradigm A ( bér-zul, búr-dul); cf. also the locative stem bá-di. Within Andian some forms (Botl., God.; cf. also Cham. Gig. haj) go back to the simple root *harHi, but most forms reflect the diminutive derivate *har(Hi)-ḳV. In Akhvakh there occurred a metathesis: ḳeha < *heḳa < *harHi-ḳV.
