Search within this database
Protoform: *č̣aba
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 clay 2 mud, slush 3 earthen floor
Avar: č̣abár 3
Andian language: č̣ab-χi 1,2
Akhvakh: č̣abari 1 (Ratl.)
Chamalal: č̣aba 3
Tindi: č̣aba 2
Comments: Av. paradigm C (č̣arbí-l, č̣árba-l). -r in Av. (cf. also Akhv. Ratl. č̣aba-ri 'clay') in Akhv. reflects a suffix (probably plural). Cf. also Cham. (U.-Gakv.) č̣abar 'earth', Tind. č̣abar 'floor' - obviously borrowed from Avar.
