Tsezian etymology :

Proto-Tsezian: *čo A
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 long hair 2 mane 3 hair in horse's tail
Ginukh: čud 1
Khvarshi: čoda 1
Inkhokvari: ču 2
Bezhta: čoj 3
Comments: A rather complicated case. The PTs paradigm must have looked like *čo, *čorV-; the direct base is preserved in Inkh. ču (PTsKh *ču), and the oblique one (having passed to direct) - in Bezht. čoj (PGB *čorV). The Gin. and Khvarsh. forms are results of contaminating this root (PTsKh *ču) with PTsKh *kɔdV 'long hair' q.v.
