\data\cauc\abadet
Proto-West-Caucasian: *q̇́Ia / *q̇́Iaq̇́IV
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: sweet
Abkhaz: á-χā
Abaza: qaʕa
Adyghe: ʡā-s.ʷǝ
Kabardian: ʡa-f.
Ubykh: q̇aq̇ǝ́
Comments: PAT *qaʕa (cf. also Bzyb. á-χā); PAK *ʡa-c̣ʷǝ́. The PAT and Ub. forms are reduplicated (note that PAT *qaʕa reflects an early dissimilation *q̇́Iaq̇́IV- > *q́Iaq̇́IV-).

    See Balkarov 1967, 115 (PAK - Ub.). The PAK form is a compound with *c̣ʷǝ 'good' q.v.; the first part, however, (despite Dumézil 1963 and Shagirov 2, 158) has certainly nothing to do with *ʡa 'hand' (as well as q̇a- in Ub. q̇aq̇ǝ́).
