Meaning: self, reflexive pronoun (obl. base)
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *ʔin-
Proto-Tsezian: *hin-
Proto-Khinalug: häh- / hähin-
Notes: A common Av.-And.-Tsezian morpheme, with only sporadic parallels from other languages. Besides Khinalug, possible traces of this root can be perhaps found in Arch. inž 'self' (where -n- is absolutely superfluous if we talk about reflexes of *ʒ́ĭ q.v. - thus it may be an old compound of *HinV- + *ʒ́ĭ). If this morpheme is not an Av.-And.-Tsez. innovation, it must have played the role of the oblique base of one of the PEC reflexive pronouns (see *ʒ́ĭ and *č[ŭ]).
