Nakh etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Nakh: *dēcV ( ~ -ā-)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: paternal aunt
Chechen: dēca
Comments: Within Chech. dēca is opposed to nēca 'maternal aunt' (cf. da 'father' and nana 'mother'). Both terms, however, have different EC etymologies, and the analogy with 'father' and 'mother' (which influenced there meaning) must be secondary.
