\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *jǝmg_e ( ~ -i)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: ashes
Proto-Nakh: *jobq̇
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ƛ̣:iʔi
Proto-Tsezian: *jɔ̃ƛu A
Proto-West Caucasian: *jaɣ́a
Notes: PN *-q̇ in this case reflects a secondarily labialised *-Ł_w- < *-g_w- (the original velar nature of the root stop is suggested by the WC reflex), where labialisation was induced by medial *-m-. PA *ƛ̣:iʔi ( = *ƛ̣:iji) is obviously a metathesis < *jiƛ̣:i. With the exception of these secondary processes (quite common in NC languages), correspondences are regular, and the etymology seems quite plausible. See Abdokov 1983, 93.
