North Caucasian etymology :

\data\cauc\caucet.dbf
Proto-North Caucasian: *gwăǯē
Meaning: bitch, dog
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *g(ʷ)iži
Proto-Lak: k:ač:i
Proto-Dargwa: *k:ʷač:a
Proto-Lezghian: *k:ʷač:a
Proto-West Caucasian: *kʷǝč́:ǝ (~-ǯ́-)
Notes: The comparison seems plausible both semantically ('wolf':'dog') and phonetically; not quite clear, though, are the laryngeal features of the first consonant (we may deal with an assimilation in PEC, and then we will have to reconstruct *kwăǯē; or it may be a dissimilation in PWC: *gwăǯē > *kwăǯē > PWC *kʷǝč́:ǝ).

    EC > Osset. gaʒa, Balk. gaǯǝ 'bitch' (see Abayev 1958, 504).
