Proto-Sino-Tibetan: *ʔa
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: demonstrative pronoun
Lushai: hei this
Lepcha: a this
Kiranti: *ʔà-
Comments: Cf. also: Karen *ʔV, Idu a, Tani *ʔV, Konyak *ʔa, Manipuri a-du, Sichuan *ʔa 'that, this'. Some languages reflect a variation of ʔ- (0-) / and emphatic h- (besides Lushai, cf. Sulung *hV-, Aka *hVŋ, Konyak *ha-, Mikir ha-la, Magar ho-se, Kham hō), but there seems to be no reason for reconstructing two different pronouns.
