North Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-North Caucasian: *q̇_HwVlV (~-ɫ-)
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: heel; ankle
Proto-Tsezian: *qʷilV (~a,ɨ,u,-r-)
Proto-Lezghian: *moq̇Iol
Notes: A Tsez.-Lezg. isogloss, therefore not enough data for vocalic reconstruction. The comparison seems, nevertheless, quite probable; initial *mo- in PL is secondary - probably under analogy with body part names like *morkol 'finger/toe'.
