\data\cauc\abadet
Proto-West-Caucasian: *ʁʷa
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: yellow
Abkhaz: a-ʕʷa-́ž́
Abaza: ʕʷa-ž́
Adyghe: ʁʷa-ž́ǝ
Kabardian: ʁʷa-ź
Ubykh: ʁʷa
Comments: PAT *ʕʷa-ž́ǝ. Shagirov 1, 133 considers it as borrowed from AK; we would rather follow Dumézil 1932, 124 and regard it as a genuine cognate - but possibly influenced by PAK *ʁʷa-ž́ǝ́. In PAK there exists an independent form *ʁʷa (Ad., Kab. ʁʷa 'yellow, reddish').
