Sino-Caucasian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Sino-Caucasian: *HV́xGV
Meaning: twenty
North Caucasian: *G_ǝ̆
Yenisseian: *ʔeʔk (~x-)
Basque: *hogei
Comments and references : BCD 28. The PST form for 20 is *kul, which is rather difficult to derive from *HV́xGV. This form, however, could have been a merger with *kul 'all', and it is interesting to note an apparently archaic form: Lepcha kha '20', hardly derivable from *kul.
