Notes: Reconstructed for the PEC level. Cf. also HU: Hurr. χurrǝ, χurwǝ 'morning, east', whence the name of the Hurrian country (see Diakonoff-Starostin 1986, 63). Except for the metathesis in PA (possibly under influence of PA *riHV 'time, season'), correspondences are regular.
The word is probably a deverbal noun, and there are traces of the original verbal root in Lak. and Darg.: cf. Lak. =ija-n (=i=nu), Darg. Ur. r-urħ- (dur.) 'to shine'.
