North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: oat flour
Lezghian: saw
Tabasaran: su
Agul: musu
Rutul: su
Tsakhur: su
Kryz: suw
Comment: Cf. also Lezg. Khl. saw, Ag. Bursh. mus:u (pl. mus:uw-ur). Ag. mus:u < *mi-s:iw with a secondary *mi- (none of the other languages has any trace of it), obviously under the influence of the semantically close miḳi < *mɨƛ̣ɨj (*wɨnƛ̣ɨj) 'malt'. The obl. base can be reconstructed as *s:iwɨ-, cf. Lezg. sawu-, Rut. suji- ( < *siwɨ-).
