North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *=ĭnk_wV (/=ĭk_wVn; ~ ɨ̆)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: right, good
Proto-Nakh: *dik-/*dak-
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ʔinkʷV- / *kʷVnV-r-
Proto-Tsezian: *=ɨgV (~-ǝ-)
Proto-Dargwa: *d-uka
Proto-Lezghian: *juk:ɨ-
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. Seems both semantically ("good" - "right" is a common correlation) and phonetically reliable. Cf. also Urart. gunǝ 'right (not left), true' (see Diakonoff-Starostin 1986, 32).

    The same root is probably represented in PEC *k_wVnV 'a conditional particle' > Ud. -gin, Khin. -k:ʷa, Lak. -kun, Tsez. -kin et al.
