Comment: Cf. also Lezg. Khl. χil, Tab. Ulz. χ:il, Ag. Bursh. χ:il, Tp. ʁil. Obl. base *χ:ɨle-, cf. Lezg. ʁili-, Tab. χili-, Ag. χili-, Rut. χɨli-, Tsakh. χɨle-. The weak reflex χ- in Archi (χ:- would be expected) may be probably explained by the contamination of PL *χ:ɨl 'hand' and *χäla 'sleeve' q.v. 4th class in Rut., Arch. and Tsakh.
