noun. precipice

A noun for “precipice” developed from primitive ᴹ✶khrassē (Ety/KHARÁS). Here the [[dan|aspirate [kʰ] became the voiceless spirant [x] (“ch”)]] and then the [[dan|initial [x] became [h], unvoicing the following [r]]]. The [x]-sound is preserved in the compound name Gochressiel. This word is also an example of how a long final vowel sometimes developed into short final [a].
