Comment: The Lezg. vi (cf. also Nüt. ɣü) is used presently only in compounds (like lezgi-vi 'a Lezgian' etc.); also rare is it in Tabasaran (in compounds like murgu-ž̌i 'a brave man' etc.). The obl. vowel base had been probably *š:ʷija-, cf. Ag. šuj, šuwa-, Fit. xüj, xüja-. For initial *š:ʷ cf. also Ag. Burk. š:̌uj. Kryz. and Bud. have suffixed forms (originally probably plurals). See Хайдаков 1973, 99.
