Nakh etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Nakh: *χ-ōbṭ-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: to soak up
Chechen: χūd-
Batsbi: χoṗṭ-
Comments: Chech. reflects only the terminative stem; Bacbi, besides χoṗṭ-, has also the durative χeṗṭ- < *χ-ēbṭ-.

    The same root is contained in two common Nakh derivates:

    a) *b-ōṭi-n 'raw' (Chech. bǖda, Ing. bijda /irregular: beda would be expected/, Bacb. boṭĩ; cf. also Cheb. bwōdĩ, Shar. bū(j)dĩ etc.);

    b) (with reduplication) *ṭāṭi-n 'wet' > Chech. ṭēda, Ing. ṭäda, Bacb. ṭaṭẽ (cf. also Cheb. ṭadẽ, Shar. ṭēdã etc.). The pure stem *ṭāṭ- can be seen in Chech. ṭād-ō 'to soak, become/make wet', Bacb. ṭaṭ-dar id., ṭaṭ-al 'liquid'.
