Proto-Tsezian: *kʷɨrV
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: hand
Ginukh: kʷezej
Gunzib: koro
Comments: PGB *koro (cf. also Bezht. Tlad. koro), obl. *kɔ̃- (Bezht. ka-, Gunz. kɔ̃-). In PTs there must have coexisted oblique bases *kʷṼ- ( > PGB *kɔ̃-) and *kʷɨrV-z:a- > *kʷɨz:Vra- ( > Gin. kʷezej, kʷezera-); cf. PTs *ƛʷɨrV 'bone' with similar oblique base formation. The old oblique base *kʷṼ (shifted to direct) may be perhaps reflected in Gin. kʷe 'handle'.
