Proto-North Caucasian: *=V̄ṭwV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: to pour, soak
Proto-Nakh: *χ-ōbṭ-
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *=iṭʷ- / *ṭʷi(r)-
Proto-Tsezian: *ʔiṭʷ-
Proto-Lak: =u=ṭi-
Proto-Dargwa: *-Vrṭ-
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The root has many variants (with Ablaut and preverbs), especially in the Nakh and Av.-And. area, which makes it difficult to reconstruct vocalism. In several subgroups it tends to contaminate with *=iṭVl 'to drop, drip' (q.v.), which makes it sometimes difficult to attribute particular forms to *=V̄ṭwV or *=iṭVl. Still the two roots are opposed in several languages, and should be distinguished, at least for PEC.
