North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *ṗVħVɫV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: feather; mane
Proto-Nakh: *pēla-ḳ
Proto-Avaro-Andian: *HulV
Proto-Lak: ṗiħulli
Proto-Dargwa: *paħIal(a) (/*ṗ-)
Proto-West Caucasian: *pǝla / *pǝra
Notes: The comparison seems generally plausible, but there are some unclear points probably explained by the root's expressive nature. It concerns especially the Avar form, where one should suppose a specific loss of *ṗ(V)- before the following laryngeal.
