North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *ʔĭlć̣wɨ
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: nine
Proto-Nakh: *ʔiss
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ho(b)č̣ʷo-
Proto-Tsezian: *ʔɔ̃č̣ʷe-(nɔ) A
Proto-Lak: urč̣
Proto-Dargwa: *ʔurč̣em-
Proto-Lezghian: *u_ilč̣ʷɨ-
Proto-Khinalug: joz
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The PL form contains a former class prefix *u_-; other subgroups have either lost it or reflect a prefixless form. The vocalic correspondences are irregular just as they are in *u_ĕnc̣ɨ 'ten' (q.v.). This is due to the mutual influence of these numerals in most subgroups: nevertheless, Laki, Avar and Dargwa reflect the opposition (*-i- in 'nine', *-e- in 'ten') very well.

    One is tempted to compare the EC forms with PAT *zʷǝ 'nine' (as it was done by Trubetzkoy 1930, 275, Абоков 1983, 156). PAT *zʷǝ, however, corresponds well to Ub. bʁ́ǝ and PAK *bʁʷǝ 'nine', allowing to reconstruct PWC *bɣ́ʷǝ q.v. - and the comparison of *ʔĭlć̣wɨ and *bɣ́ʷǝ meets serious phonetic obstacles.

Proto-Tsezian: *ʔɔ̃č̣ʷe-(nɔ) A

Meaning: nine
Tsezi: oč̣ino
Ginukh: ʕač̣ino
Khvarshi: ũč̣in
Inkhokvari: õč̣č̣e
Bezhta: ač̣ena
Gunzib: uč̣č̣in (Gunz.)
Comments: PTsKh *ʔõč̣e-(no) (-a- in Gin. is irregular); PGB *ʔɔč̣ʷ[e]-n(ɔ) (labialised *-č̣ʷ- must be reconstructed to account for labial u- instead of ɔ in Gunz.). Gemination in Inkh. and Gunz. is emphatic (it is recorded only by MSU, and not noticed by Bokaryov). Nasalisation here has the same pattern of distribution as in PTs *ʔɔ̃c̣ǝ- 'ten'.

Proto-Lezghian: *u_ilč̣ʷɨ-

Meaning: nine
Lezghian: ḳü-d
Tabasaran: urč̣̌u-b
Agul: jaIrč̣u-d
Rutul: huč̣u-d
Tsakhur: jič̣u-lle /juč̣u-
Kryz: jič̣i-d
Budukh: wič̣i-d
Archi: uč̣, ūč̣a-ṭu
Udi: wuj
Comment: Cf. also Lezg. Khl. č̣u-d, Tab. Düb. hurč̣u-w, Ag. Bursh. jerč̣̌u-r, Fit. jerḳü-d, Burk. jerč̣uI-d. The resonant -r- before the hushing -č̣- in Tab. and Ag. points to PL *-l- (PL *-r- would have remained in all languages except Udi). Pharyngealization in Ag. (also in Tsakhur in the latest MSU recordings: juIč̣u-lle) may be archaic (a trace of the old laryngeal). Arch. č̣ʷi 'ninety' < *č̣iwi < (with metathesis) *u_ilč̣ʷɨ-j.
