Proto-Sino-Tibetan[edit]

Etymology[edit]

  • Proto-Sino-Tibetan: ?
    • Proto-Tibeto-Burman: *ts(i/u)-t (Matisoff, STEDT), *(t)sit (Matisoff, 2003), *ʔtsut (Matisoff, 1978)

The final -s in Japhug rGyalrong might indicate that the root should be reconstructed with a sibilant rather than a dental stop coda.
