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.
