Proto-North Caucasian: *ḳ_wɨ̆mhV ( ~ -ɦ-)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: cloud, fog
Proto-Nakh: *ṭq̇aw
Proto-Tsezian: *qɨma A (~-i- B)
Proto-Lezghian: *k:om:ol
Proto-West Caucasian: *naq̇ʷa
Notes: A reconstruction *ḳ_wɨ̆nhV (with secondary assimilation > *ḳ_wɨ̆mhV in PEC and metathesis > *nhɨ̆ḳ_wV > *naq̇ʷa in PWC) is also not excluded. The Nakh form here is questionable (it can belong here only if PN *ṭq̇ can really reflect PEC *ḳw which is somewhat dubious); all other forms belong together with a high degree of probability.
