Meaning: 1 big 2 good
Agul: ʕaba-ni-r 1
Kryz: bu 1
Budukh: boʕlu 1
Archi: hiba-t:u-t 2
Comment: The Ag. word is from the Burshag dialect (in Richa the root is reduplicated: baba-f). The semantic shift 'big'/'good' is rather common. Vowels are hard to reconstruct (but probably there was *i in the first syllable).
