\data\eura\globet
Borean (approx.) : HVCV
Meaning : to see, perceive
Eurasiatic : *ʔVwCV(HV) (cf. also *ʔincV)
Afroasiatic : *ʔi/uǯn- ~ ʔi/udn-
Sino-Caucasian : *=ămsṭĔ́
Austric : *cVj 'ear' (? perhaps alternatively comparable with Ainu *kisara)
Amerind (misc.) : *isa 'ear, hear' ? (R 201) [+ A]; *asa ~ *aša 'eye' (R 233) [+ A]; *ʔica 'see' (R 611)
African (misc.) : Cf. Macro-Khoisan *c̮kVŋ "to see".
Notes : Many problems: phonology (*-m- / -w-?); attribution of IE 'ear'; variation *-ǯ- / -d- in SH; unclear relationship of Sem. *ħzy/w 'see' and NC (Nakh, HU) *χV̆c̣V 'hear'. This and the distinction of two roots in FU suggests that we are dealing with two original roots, hard to distinguish.
