Proto-West-Caucasian: *bIaga
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 jackal 2 fox
Abkhaz: á-bga 1
Abaza: baga 2
Adyghe: bāǯ́a 2
Kabardian: bāža 2
Ubykh: bIaǵá-šʷ 1
Comments: PAT *bVga; PAK *baǯ́á. The development *g > *ǯ́ in PAK is not clear (the antiquity of *ǯ́ in Adyg is proved by the Ubykh loanword baǯ́á 'fox'); nevertheless, the regular correspondence PAT *bVga : Ub. bIaǵa- leaves no doubt in the reconstruction of PWC *bIaga.
