North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *=Vʎ_wVn
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: to sow
Proto-Nakh: *fuw
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *xunʔi
Proto-Lak: hanna
Proto-Dargwa: *xʷe
Proto-Lezghian: *ʎ:ʷin
Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. The verb itself is preserved not very widely (that is why its vocalism is not clear): PA *-VxʷV(n), Lak. =u-ha-, PD *=axʷVn. Much more widely spread is the deverbative noun *ʎwĭnʔɨ̄ ( ~ -ǝ̆), reflected also in PN and PL (although the verb was not preserved in those subgroups).

    See Trubetzkoy 1922, 240.
