North Caucasian etymology :

Proto-North Caucasian: *pāHnV
Sino-Caucasian etymology: Sino-Caucasian etymology
Meaning: hen
Proto-Nakh: *mēʔ
Proto-Dargwa: *ʔabʔa
Proto-Lezghian: *paʡ
Notes: An onomatopoeic and thus not very reliable root; the PD form is reduplicated (with voicelessness of *p neutralized before ʔ). The final cluster *Hn is reconstructed to account for nasalisation of the initial *p- > m- in PN.
