RutulEdit

EtymologyEdit

A Turkic borrowing: compare Azerbaijani qovaq, Turkish kavak (poplar).[1] See also Lezgi къавах (q̄avaχ).

The supposed form kalax cited by Erckert is probably a typo. Note that he marks it as a Turkic borrowing like the other Caucasian forms with -v-, but unlike Lak кӏялахӏи (ḳjalaḥi).

NounEdit

къавах (transliteration needed)

  1. poplar[2]
