North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *=HrV̆jś_Ē
Meaning: thick, dense, fat
Proto-Nakh: *=arsṭ-
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *=iš:-
Proto-Tsezian: *ʕaš:-
Proto-Lezghian: *rɨš:V-
Proto-West Caucasian: *pǝśǝ ( ~ -š-)
Notes: The WC form has a usual labial prefix (a former class marker). Medial *-j- must be reconstructed to account for the development *-ś- > *-sṭ- in PN. Vocalic correspondences are not quite clear (due to the -j- and to the influence of the initial laryngeal); otherwise correspondences are regular.
