Lezghian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Lezghian: *ḳälḳ- (~-e-,-r-)
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 calf (of leg) 2 knee 3 top of boot
Lezghian: ḳerḳem 1 (Akht.)
Agul: ḳeḳ 3
Udi: k:aIk:aIp 2
Comment: Both in Lezg. and Ud. suffixed forms are observed (probably original pluralia). Ag. ḳeḳ should be kept distinct from the reflexes of PL *q̇Iäq̇:Iʷ 'throat; top of boot' q.v. (in the Burk. dialect both ḳeḳ and q̇eq̇ are used for "top of boot", but in the Richa dialect ḳeḳ is 'top of boot', while q̇Iaq̇ is 'throat').
