Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *kil-eṛi
Meaning : to shout
Gondwan etymology: Gondwan etymology
Kui : klīri inba "to shriek"
Kuwi (Fitzgerald) : kileri-kīali "to shout, yell"
Kuwi (Schulze) : kileḍi kīnai
Additional forms : Also Kui klīri klīri ṛīva to shriek with fear; klīsi klīsi ṛīva to shout with vehemence; Kuwi_S klīrinai, klīri innai to yell
Notes : The form common for both languages is *kileṛi (although we have simple -r- in Kui. maybe it is misspelled, maybe due to vocalic context); in Kui it has been metathesed > *klīri. The form klīsi is specifically a Kui one and should go back to *kil-ci (or *kil-eci). Cf. also PK *klā-.
