Meaning:1 to burn 2 to get heated 3 warm 4 to boil
Comment: Cf. also Ag. Bursh. k-ejxi- 'to burn'. The Tsakh. form poses some problems. In the Tsakh. dialect Talibov has noted only q-o-xan- 'boil' which obviously must belong to another root (see *ʔVrʎ:an). However, in the Mikik dialect both k-o=xar- 'boil' and ǵ-o=x:an- 'burn (intr.)' had been written down - with seemingly reversed semantics. This is either a result of interdialectal mixture or faulty notice.
There is a great deal of confusion in the Tsakh. recordings as to the tenseness of -x- (-x:-) in this root, thus the PL reconstruction (*-ʎʷ- or *-ʎ:ʷ-) is not clear in this point.
