North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *ʡǟdV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: thing; interrogative pronoun
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *[h]idV
Proto-Tsezian: *hɔdV (~ ħ-, -a-)
Proto-Khinalug: de-l
Proto-West Caucasian: *t:V
Notes: Cf. also HU: Hurr. edǝ 'body, thing', Ur. edi- 'thing' (see Diakonoff-Starostin 1986, 26). It is not quite clear which meaning is original - 'thing' or 'what', because both are rather widely reflected.

    We should also mention a quite isolated form: Lak. ta 'when', which has an irregular devoiced t-, but possibly reflects the same EC root.
