Proto-Nakh: *ʒɦuṭ
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: 1 bitch 2 woman
Chechen: zud 1, zuda 2
Ingush: zud 1
Comments: PN *ʒɦuṭ, *ʒɦuṭe- (3d class) "bitch" (for the obl. base cf. Chech. züda-, Ing. zudo; cf. also Pharch., Akk. zud, Lev. ʒʕud id.). The derivate *ʒʕuṭan "woman" exists only in Chech. (cf. Usl. zudaŋ, Akk. zudã; note that the Lev. dialect in Imnaishvili's notation has no laryngeal here: ʒuda - perhaps a faulty transcription?).
