Kui-Kuwi etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *pū-a
Meaning : spark; embers
Kui : pūvala "spark (of fire)"
Khuttia Kui : pua "embers"
Kuwi (Fitzgerald) : puiya "spark"
Parja Kuwi : pūya "embers"
Kuwi (Israel) : puyã "burning coal"
Additional forms : Also Kuwi_Isr puva spark
Notes : One more vocalic auslaut here, this time accompanied by the suffix *-a-. The gap was filled in most dialects, either by -v- (in Kui, cf. similar treatment of verbal roots with vocalic auslaut) or by -y- (in Kuwi). The form puva in Kuwi_Isr must be borrowed from Kui, especially since the usual semantics in Kuwi is 'embers', not 'spark'.
Number in DED : 4347
