\data\cauc\nakhet
Proto-Nakh: *čālu(n)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 grey 2 roan
Chechen: čōla 1
Ingush: čɔla 2
Comments: Cf. also Cheb. čōlõ, Ved. čālã etc. The word resembles Turk. *čāl 'grey', but cannot be a loanword (because of its morphological structure); however, the Turk. word could have influenced the meaning of Nakh *čālu(n) - since the original meaning of the root in Dagestan languages is 'blue, green'.
