Rutul: lukʷa- 1,2
Kryz: i=kn- 3
Budukh: i=kin- 3

Comment: In Ag. only the Bursh. form is known. In Shakhdagh the semantics may be modified because of contamination with another root, PL *ʔargʷVn- (/*ʔirgʷVn-) 'to stay'; but cf. the old participial form kɨn in Kryz. kɨn xi-jiǯ 'to fall, be scattered', kɨn jeriǯ 'to scatter, pour' ( = Arch. kam-mus, dur. kamá-r 'to throw' < *kʷän-). Cf. also preverbial forms in Shakhdagh: Kryz. ʕä=kn- 'to become tired', Bud.: ʕala=kl- 'to drop, drip' (with preservation of -l due to -l- in the preverb).
