Comments: The sibilant x /š/ in some local dialects of BZK and GIP is phonetic, not expressive (i.e., in those dialects /s/ changes to /š/ generally after /i/); in some other dialects (BZK-Markina, BNV, ZBR, BZT) gixon is diminutive 'little man', ZBR gixot 'miserly, stingy person'. Cf. Aquitanian CIS(S)ON in male names.
