North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: demonstrative pronoun stem
Chechen: dʕā
Ingush: dʕa
Batsbi: da-ħ
Comments: The actual stem da- is clearly seen in Bacb. da-χeʔ "because of that", da-ħ, da-ħa "there". The Chech.-Ing. form dʕā is a contraction from *da-ħa; it served as a basis for the now common demonstrative pronoun dʕā-ra "that".
