Search within this database
Proto-Sino-Caucasian: *č̣wǝ̆ḳwV
Meaning: knife, axe, to drill holes
Borean etymology: Borean etymology
North Caucasian: *č̣_wɨḳwV
Sino-Tibetan: *ʒ́hV̄kʷ
Yenisseian: *čok
Burushaski: *ćak
Comments and references : HGC 32, NSC 53 *č̣wVḳ(w)V, DCE 25. PY points to lax phonation, contradicting NC tenseness (which is itself, however, not quite certain, being based on a somewhat questionable equation of PC *ṭʷiq and PL *č̣uḳa).
