Proto-West-Caucasian: *p(ǝ)č́a-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: fat, thick
Adyghe: pš́ar
Kabardian: pšar
Comments: PAK *pč́árǝ. Final *-rǝ may be a suffix (cf. an analogical suffix in the PA form), but the root *pč́a- has no parallels in other WC languages: the comparison with PAT *pǝśǝ-la 'fat' (see Shakryl 1968, 29; Abdokov 1973, 16, 21, 27; Shagirov 2, 29) can not be accepted for phonetic reasons (the correspondence PAK *č́ : PAT *ś does not exist).
