Lezghian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Lezghian: *-ič(ʷ)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: self, oneself (reflexive pronoun)
Lezghian: wič
Tabasaran: uč̌
Tsakhur: či-n(a) (gen.)
Comment: In Tsakh. the stem is used only for the 3d/4th classes (opposed to ǯu-/ǯe-, see PL *-iž); in Lezg. and Tab. it is used for the 3d person (while the stem *-iž is used for the 1st and 2d persons). The original usage is probably the Tsakhur one.

    The PL paradigm can be reconstructed as *ʔičʷ (dir. stem), *ča- (obl. stem, cf. Tab. gen. ča-n, Ag. Bursh. ič̌, če-).
