North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 bone 2 carcass, skeleton
Abkhaz: á-baʕʷ 1
Abaza: bʕʷǝ 1
Adyghe: p:q:ǝ 2
Kabardian: p:q:ǝ 2
Comments: PAT *bAʕʷǝ, PAK *p:q:ǝ (with dissimilatory delabialisation). Ub. pqǝ (á-pq) 'bone' is considered (see Шагиров 2,48) an Adygh loan (as also Abaz. ṗq̇ǝ 'carcass, skeleton'), which must be true (otherwise we should expect pharyngealised -qI(ʷ)- in Ub.).
