Meaning: thou

Arin: au (М., Сл.)
Pumpokol: úe (Сл.)
Comments: ССЕ 185. Werner 2, 318 - with an absolutely unacceptable reconstruction *ǝg(ǝ) / *ug(ǝ). All the above forms do not allow reconstructing any medial consonant of any kind, and the 2d p. plural Ket. ъ̄k(ŋ), Yug. ъkŋ / kъkŋ has a quite different, suppletive origin (see *kV- / *ʔVk-).

North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *uō
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: thou (2-d p. pr.)
Proto-Nakh: *waj
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *mi-n
Proto-Tsezian: *mǝ
Proto-Lak: wi-
Proto-Lezghian: *uo-n
Proto-Khinalug:
Proto-West Caucasian: *wA
Notes: Cf. also HU *we- (Hurr. erg. we-š, gen. we-we; not attested in Ur.). The same stem is used as a pronominal enclytic (Hurr., Ur. -w) and as a verbal ending of the 2-d pers. sing. (Hurr. -ū/-ō, Ur. -au).

    The PN form is somewhat problematical: it is the 1-st p. pl. inclusive pronoun, and may belong here if this meaning is secondarily developped from "thou"(+"I").

    The direct stem is easily reconstructed as *uō or *uō-n (cf. *zō, *zō-n for the 1-st pers.), with nasal assimilation in PA (*mi-n < *wi-n) and PC (*mǝ < *wǝ-n). One of the oblique stems (most probably genitive) was also formed from this root (cf. HU *we-/*-Vw, Lak. wi- /in Lak. the direct stem was replaced by another stem, ina, and only the original oblique stem was preserved/, PL *-iu, Khin. wi < PEC *ʔiuV- (or *ʔeuV- ). However, for other cases suppletive forms were used (*ʁwV̄- / *ʔŏʁwV- and *du- q.v.); PL *wa- and Khin. erg. wa are probably innovations (by analogy with *za- in the 1-st person). See Trubetzkoy 1930, 273; Абдоков 1983, 140.
