Lezghian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Lezghian: *č:i[ḳ]V-
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: short
Tabasaran: žiq:i
Agul: žaq:e-f
Rutul: ǯɨk-dɨ
Tsakhur: ?ǯiṭa-na
Comment: There are difficulties with the second consonant: the Tsakh. form may be explained as a contraction of *č:iK-t:V- (with an old adjective suffix); but the uvular in Tab. and Ag. is unclear.

    See Хайдаков 1973, 107.
