Georgian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Georgian წუერი ‎(c̣ueri), from Proto-Georgian-Zan *c̣wer-. Further origin is uncertain, but see Old Georgian for more.

Cognate with Mingrelian წვანჯი ‎(c̣vanǯi), წვანდი ‎(c̣vandi). Compare also Svan უ̂ა̈რე, უ̂ერე ‎(ûäre, ûere, beard) which may be from the same source (in which case the term can be reconstructed for Proto-Kartvelian).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /tsʼvɛri/
  • Hyphenation: წვე‧რი

Noun[edit]

წვერი ‎(c̣veri) ‎(plural წვერები)

  1. tip, vertex, point, top
  2. beard
