North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *q̇_ǝ̆twV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: stump, board, chopped piece
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *q̇:atʷV ( ~ -o-)
Proto-Tsezian: *q̇ɔt(u)
Proto-Lezghian: *q̇aṭ
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. In PL we have to assume an assimilation (*-t- > *-ṭ-), which is usual in roots containing two stops. With secondary semantic development 'piece' > 'piece of bread' cf. perhaps also Darg. Chir. q̇uṭur 'piece of bread, cake' (cf. a similar process under PEC *q̇ăc̣ɨ̆).
