\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *q_wVɫVq̇V ( / *q_wVq̇VɫV)
Meaning: egg; grain
Proto-Tsezian: *qõq-lV
Proto-Dargwa: *q:ulq̇i
Proto-Lezghian: *q:VlVq:
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The semantic shift 'grain' <> 'seed, egg' is rather frequent, and the etymology seems reliable both phonetically and semantically. The most archaic phonetic shape (with two different consonants) is preserved in Darg.; in Lezg. and PC the first consonant was assimilated to the second one. There is not enough evidence to reconstruct vowels in this root.
