\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *q̇wĀc̣Ă / *c̣Ăq̇wĀ
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: tail
Proto-Lezghian: *q̇ʷVc̣-
Proto-Khinalug: q̇až
Proto-West Caucasian: *c̣ǝq:ʷa
Notes: Although the root is not widely spread in EC, the comparison seems phonetically plausible (metathesis is usual in roots of this type). See also PNC *ḳwV̆[c]V 'tail': the mutual relationship of these two roots is not quite clear, and we prefer to keep them distinct (unlike Abdokov 1983, 85).
