Meaning: 1 cheek,cheek-bone 2 spine 3 bone 4 rib
Lezghian: p:arḳʷ 1 (Khl.)
Rutul: barḳʷ 2 (Al.)
Tsakhur: barḳʷ 3
Kryz: beḳ 4
Comment: Obl. stem *p:alḳʷa- (cf. Lezg. Khl. p:arḳʷa-, Tsakh. Gelm. barḳʷa-). Medial *-l- is reconstructed because of the liquid's preservation before a velar (original *-r- would be lost). 3d class in Tsakh., 4th class in Kryz. The root must have denoted some specific bone; to judge from external evidence, originally it must have been some bone of leg.
