Proto-North Caucasian: *Hʒ́_ĕmɨ̄ ( ~ -ū)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: butter, curds
Proto-Nakh: *mac̣-ru
Proto-Tsezian: *cɨn ( ~ -i-)
Proto-Lezghian: *č̣:äIm
Proto-Khinalug: mic
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The PN and PL forms correspond well to each other; the Gin. and Khin. forms, however, raise some doubts (the Gin. form has irregular vocalism and final -n; in Khin. one would rather expect a form like *č̣im).
