Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *vaḷ-[s-]
Meaning : to sharpen
Gondwan etymology: Gondwan etymology
Kui : vala "point, sharp end, spearhead, sting"
Kuwi (Fitzgerald) : rechali "to hone"
Kuwi (Schulze) : lē'nai
Sunkarametta Kuwi : ṛe'-
Tekriya Kuwi : vaṛh- (vaṛst-)

Additional forms : Also Kuwi_Su ṛemperi valli whetstone; Kuwi_F repel vwalli whetstone; Kuwi_Isr ṛēka vali, ṛēmpa vali, ṛēmpori vali sharpening stone
Notes : The Kui form reflects the simple root. Kuwi verbal forms date back to *vaḷs-, t-conjugation, whence the reduction in most dialects: *vaḷs-p- > *vḷe-p- > *ḷe-p- (only the vowel quality is somewhat strange). The form *vaḷs- is also confirmed by external data.
