\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *mHilaGwV / *GHwimalV (~ -ɫ-)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: worm
Proto-Tsezian: *ʁʷimilV (~ *ʁ:ʷ-,r)
Proto-Dargwa: *milaq:Iʷ
Proto-Lezghian: *mulaqIʷ
Proto-Khinalug: mok
Proto-West Caucasian: *χÍamǝlǝ-
Notes: An interesting trisyllabic root with metatheses (rather usual in this case). Not quite clear is the reason for devoicing in PWC (regularly *ʁ́I(ʷ) would be expected); otherwise the correspondences are regular, and the etymology seems quite plausible.
