Afroasiatic etymology: Afroasiatic etymology
Meaning: cheek-bone
Syrian Aramaic: (?) gūnītā 'angulus (oculi)' [Brock 125], gūnǝyā 'angulus' [ibid.].

    Semantically comparable only if 'angulus oculi' is the primary meaning

Arabic: waǧn-at- 'joue, surtout joue saillante' [ibid. 2 1494]; ʔaǧn-at-, ʔiǧn-at-, ʔuǧn-at- 'pommette, partie saillante de la joue au-dessous de l'oeil' [ibid. 1 14].

    ʔV- may be a prefix or another triconsonantizer, besides w-, of the biradical stem *gVn-

Gurage: (?) ENN END GYE MASQ GOG g'in, MUH g'ǝn, SOD gin 'hollow in the nape of the neck' [LGur 309].

    According to Leslau, < OROMO ginni). Cf. also MUH MSQ GOG SOD gunnän, CHA gunär etc. 'head' (also 'hair of head' and 'top, summit') [ibid. 284], which Leslau interprets as *gunnän proposing no etymology

Jibbali: ɛ́gǝnt 'cheek-bone' [JJ 288]; ōgǝn 'to have prominent cheek-bones' [ibid.]

Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. Correspondences are quite regular.

    One feels tempted to compare with this root PAK *náḳʷǝ 'cheek, face' (Ad., Kab. naḳʷ - Shagirov's /1, 278/ analysis of *ḳʷǝ here as *gʷǝ 'heart, middle' is not persuasive). However, there are at once two irregularities: one which is rather common (metathesis) and another - shift of *q̇ʷ to *ḳʷ - which is more difficult to account for. We can not offer any final solution.

Pumpokol: qan (Сл.) "lip, face", (Сл., Срсл., Кл.) "mouth"
Comments: ССЕ 244. The Arin form is possessive ("my mouth, my face"). Neither Arin, nor Pumpokol have any traces of word-medial *-w- here, so regarding them as plural forms of *χowe 'mouth' (q.v.), as done by Werner 2, 126, seems hardly possible. The Ket-Yug forms are listed in Werner 2, 108 without a comparison with Ar. and Pump. and without reconstruction .
