North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *ǯăwV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: kidney; gall
Proto-Nakh: *ǯim
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *žV(bV)
Proto-Tsezian: *žebu B
Proto-West Caucasian: *žǝ
Notes: The PN form has been transformed under influence of *stim 'gall' q.v. Otherwise the correspondences are regular.

    For phonetic reasons, as well as because of another quite satisfactory etymology, one must give up the comparison of PWC *žǝ with Av. c:in, PN *stim etc. 'gall', proposed by Trubetzkoy (1930, 278; see also Шагиров 1, 205).

Protoform: *žV(bV)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: kidney
Avar: baʕár-žo
Comments: Cf. also úrhis:a-žo id. In modern Av. the component -žo here is perceived as žo 'thing' ('red thing', 'inner thing'); this is obviously a folk etymology, and Av. -žo = PTs *žebu etc. It is interesting to note also Arch. žan 'spleen' which must be a borrowing from old Avar (but contaminated with Av. žan / < Pers./ 'soul').

North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: gall
Abkhaz: á-z

Adyghe: zazǝ
Kabardian: zaz
Ubykh: -ca (?)
Comments: PAT *(a)źǝ (cf. Bzyb. - in Marr's notation - á-ź); PAK (reduplicated) *zazǝ. Ub. -ca may be observed in c̣ʷa-cá 'gall' - assimilation from *c̣ʷa-zá (?); note that Ub. zaza 'gall' (recorded by Dirr), as well as Abaz. zaz (coexisting with the genuine az), is an Adygh loanword.

    The correspondence PAK, Ub. z : PAT *ź points to PWC *ž.
