\data\cauc\caucet
Proto-North Caucasian: *c̣ĂwnV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: dark
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *b-Vc̣V-
Proto-Lak: c̣an
Proto-Dargwa: *c̣aIb- (~-p:-)
Proto-Lezghian: *ʔVc̣Vn-
Proto-West Caucasian: *c̣ʷa
Notes: As seen from the Lak. and Darg. forms, the use of this root with class prefixes (*w-, reflected in Av. and Ud.) is probably secondary. Medial *-w- is reflected in Darg. as -b- and in PWC as labialisation. Pharyngealisation in Dargwa may be secondary (expressive); if it is not, *c̣HĂwnV should be reconstructed. See Абдоков 1983, 142.
