\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *kɨ̄lṭwV
Meaning: some flat part of body
Proto-Nakh: *kōrta
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ḳortV (~ -a-)
Proto-Tsezian: *kɨṭʷa / *kʷɨṭa
Proto-Lak: č̣anṭi
Proto-Lezghian: *kʷɨlṭ-/*ḳʷɨlt-
Proto-Khinalug: ṭuḳun
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The semantic shifts between "temple of head" ( > "head"), "cheek" and "buttock" are rather usual, but it is not quite clear which part of body was originally denoted by the root. The Khin. form could be borrowed from Shakh-Dagh languages (cf. Bud. ḳuṭun), but this is not very probable because of metathesis in Khin.
