Comments: Both the Av. and North. Akhv. form reflect the oblique base c̣ari- ( ~ -o-) from a noun, preserved in Akhv. Tlan.: č̣a 'household'; cf. also the Av. compounds q̇:aji-c̣á 'house belongings' (q̇:aji 'thing(s)), c̣a-rʕa 'vessels, plates and dishes' (raʕ 'pitcher'). The latter compound was borrowed in Cham. (Gig.) as c̣araʕi, and in Bezht. (Khosh.) as c̣araʔ (reflecting an earlier Av. form, without reduction).
