Proto-North Caucasian: *χHVr[ć̣]V
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: marten; otter
Proto-Nakh: *χešt (~ -ē-,-ṭ)
Proto-Dargwa: *χ:Iarc̣
Notes: A Nakh-Darg. isogloss with somewhat irregular correspondences (due to the root's expressive nature). The specific cluster *št (*šṭ) in PN is probably a result of suffixation (*χHVrć̣-ṭV; cf. an analogous dental suffix in other 'weasel' names: PN *dingV-ṭ, *šVrṭq̇V < *šVrq̇-ṭV).
