Comment: The verb belongs to the strong verbal class in PL. Initial Kryz. j- is probably a preverb (cf. in Bud. o-ṭ- 'kill': jo-ṭ- 'cut', ʕa-ṭ- 'pound, thresh', ʕo-ṭ- 'to push', e-ṭ- 'to cut in small pieces'; also Kryz. q:-o=ṭr-, Bud. q:u-ṭ- 'to hit', Kryz. q:-a=ṭr- 'to mow'). Cf. (for the second vowel) Lezg. praet. aṭu-na, Ag. Bursh. aṭi-s, Arch. dur. =arṭu-r. The Udi form bost:un goes back to *b-ot:-sun.
