Proto-Lezghian: *kʷɨlṭ-/*ḳʷɨlt-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 temple 2 cheek 3 head 4 skull
Rutul: q̇ɨlta-n 1 (Khn.)
Tsakhur: ḳutel 1
Kryz: ḳʷaṭin 2
Budukh: ḳuṭun 2
Archi: karṭi 3
Udi: ? k:ant:az 4
Comment: Cf. also Tsakh. (Tsakh.) ḳurṭel 'temple'. In Rut. q̇- is due to contamination with q̇ul 'head'; the Udi form is somewhat obscure phonetically (maybe we should rather list here Ud. ḳodo-χ 'forehead' ?). All languages show suffixed forms (with *-n in Rut., Kryz. and Bud., *-l in Tsakh. and *-j in Arch.). 3d class in Kryz. and Bud., but 4th class in Rut., Tsakh. and Arch.
