\data\cauc\nakhet
Proto-Nakh: *for-d ( ~-ṭ)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: sea
Chechen: hord
Ingush: ford
Comments: 6th class in both languages. Abayev (1,485-486) thinks that the Nakh forms are borrowed from Ossetian (fūrd / ford 'big river, sea'). But the Ossetian word has no Iranian or IE etymology (see Abayev ibid.), whereas the NC etymology of the Nakh word ( = Av. raʎád etc.) is quite clear - therefore it is obvious that the Ossetian word is borrowed from Nakh.
