Meaning: interrogative pronoun
Lak form: ci
Comments: Lak. ci 'what', cu 'who' (Khosr. ci, cʷu) (cf. also cu-kun 'how', cu-k-s:a 'how many', Khosr. ci-mi, ci-k-s:a id. etc.) A regular reflex with č- is preserved in čuw, Khosr. čū 'where'; reasons for the shift č- > c- are not clear (cf. the same development in *ču > cu '(one)self').
