Nakh etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Nakh: *t-ōχ-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: to beat, hit
Chechen: tōχ-
Ingush: toχ-
Batsbi: toχ-
Comments: The stem *t-ōχ- is terminative; the durative counterpart *t-ē-b-χ- is preserved in Bacb. tepχ-. An old Ablaut stem *-ārχ- with another preverb (*d-) is probably reflected in Chech. darχ-ō 'wounded (person)' (the semantic correlation 'to hit' - 'to wound' is quite usual in NC languages).
