Proto-Lezghian: *parq̇:ul:
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 bark 2 burdock 3 plantain
Lezghian: p:arq̇ul 2
Rutul: paq:Iul 2
Kryz: bärqul 3
Archi: paq̇:ut 1
Comment: The root reveals an initial fluctuation of *p (Rut., Arch.) and *p: (Lezg., Kryz.), probably due to assimilation. Pharyngealization in Rut. is secondary, due to contamination with PL *palq̇Iʷ 'burdock' (which is a quite different root q.v.). 3d class in Arch., but 4th class in Kryz.
