\data\cauc\nakhet
Proto-Nakh: *mʡāra
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: claw, finger-nail; hook, fork
Chechen: mʕāra
Ingush: mʕara
Batsbi: mʕajrĭ
Comments: In Chech. there exists a parallel form maʕar which is obviously secondary. The obl. base should be reconstructed as *mʡāre- (cf. Chech. mʕēra-, Ing. mʕara-, Bacb. mʕare-). Belongs to the 4th class in the meaning "nail, claw", but to the 6th in the meaning "hook".
