North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: blood
Rutul: ä-bir
Tsakhur: e-b
Archi: bi
Udi: p:i
Comment: Cf. also Tsakh. Gelm. e-bi (ebiji-) which is more archaic than the form eb in other dialects. Only Arch. and Ud. preserve the independent root, while other languages reflect a compound *ʔäʔ-p:ij (in Rut. the second part was reinterpreted as a plural marker -bir).
