Comments: An old derivate from this verbal root is -cel in Av. χ:arí-cel 'scythe' (in the first part of the compound - Av. χ:er, obl. χ:arí- 'grass'). The Avar compound was borrowed in many Andian and Tsezian languages (sometimes with distortion, usual for a long borrowed word): Akhv. qalic:a, Cham. χ:arical, Gig. χarica 'sickle', Tind. q:arisa ( > Inkh. qarisa), Tsez. χerceli, Gin. χalicen.
