Meaning: mouse, rat

Proto-Lak: uIḳu-lu
Proto-Lezghian: *nVq̇Iʷe-l

Proto-West Caucasian: *qʷǝnV
Notes: A connection between PEC *ɦnǝ̄q̇_wǝ̄ and PWC *qʷǝnV (first suggested by Bouda 1948, 193-194) is very probable, although phonetically not quite regular: we should expect strong *q:ʷ in PWC, and reasons for its weakening are not yet clear.
