Comments: The PTs paradigm: dir. *cʷǝ̃, obl. *cʷǝrV-. Cf. PTsKh *cǝ̃, *cǝRo- (reflected, e.g. in Tsez. ci, ciro-), PGB *cɔ̃, *cɔrV- (reflected in Bezht. Khosh. cã, cãra- - although the nasalisation in the oblique base is here secondary). In Bezht. Tl. and Gunz. the oblique base has replaced the direct one. The vowel correlation PTsKh *ǝ : PGB *ɔ points unambiguosly to PTs *ǝ with a preceding labialization.
