Comment: -r- in Lezg. warz probably comes from the oblique base PL *woc:-ra- / *wac:-ra-, cf. Lezg. wac:ra, Arch. bocro, Kryz. wuzur-. The Ablaut *-a-/-o- in the root is witnessed by Kryz. wäz : wuzur- and Tsakh. Gelm. waz : wɨza-. Belongs uniformly to the 3d class in all class-distinguishing languages.

Word: ме́сяц,
Near etymology: укр. мíсяць, ст.-слав. мѣсѩць μήν, σελήνη, болг. ме́сец, сербохорв. мjе̏се̑ц, словен. mе̣̑sес, чеш. měsíc, слвц. mеsiас, польск. miesiąc, в.-луж. měsac, н.-луж. mjаsес.
Further etymology: Восходит к и.-е. *mēs- (из *mēns-), как и др.-инд. mās-, mā́sas м. "месяц; луна", авест. mā̊, род. п. mā̊ŋhō, нов.-перс. māh "луна; месяц", др.-перс. māhyā "в месяце", наряду с греч. ион. μείς (*μηνς), атт. μήν, род. п. μηνός, лесб. род. п. μῆννος, лат. mēnsis "месяц", которые восходят к и.-е. *mēns-. Далее родственны: лит. mė́nuo, mė́nesis "месяц, луна", лтш. mẽnesis -- то же, др.-прусск. menins "луна", тохар. А mañ, В meñe "месяц" (В. Шульце, UJb. 7, 173; Тосhаr. Gr. 49), арм. amis, род. п. аmsоу "месяц" (Хюбшман 417), алб. muai "месяц" (*mēns-; см. Г. Майер, Alb. Wb. 288), ирл. mī, род. п. mīs "месяц", гот. mēnа "луна", mēnōþs "месяц". И.-е. имя склонялось след. образом: *mēnōt -- им. ед., *mēneses -- род. п. ед.; см. Шпехт у Вальде--Гофм. 2, 71 и сл.; И. Шмидт, KZ 26, 345 и сл.; Pluralb. 194. Слав. форма *měsęcь основана на расширении с помощью назального элемента и, далее, -kо-. Предпринимались попытки установить родство с *mē- "мерить", причем луна представлялась как мера времени, но ср. Шпехт, KZ 66, 53 и сл.; Вальде--Гофм., там же; см. еще обо всех этих словах Бернекер 2, 51 и сл.; Педерсен, IF 5, 46; Траутман, ВSW 179 и сл.; М.--Э. 2, 616; Мейе, Ét. 336; Перссон, 586; Шпехт 9 и сл. Форма слав. слова позволяет предположить здесь задабривающее название; см. Хаверс 83 и сл. Ср. со́лнце.
