\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *HĭrḳwĔ
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: man, person
Proto-Nakh: *sṭ-aḳ
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *hiḳʷa
Proto-Tsezian: *hiḳʷǝ A/ *riḳʷǝ A
Proto-Lak: -arḳ
Proto-West Caucasian: *ḳ́ʷa
Notes: This root (originally meaning 'person, man') is seldom used independently (only in PA and some Tsezian languages). In EC languages it is most frequently used in a compound with *ćwijo 'man' ('man-person'); in PWC it became a morpheme of Nomina Agentis ("person doing smth."). The etymology seems phonetically and semantically quite plausible.
