[Back to the Chapter Browser] Chest

Note the relationship between CHEST and BELLY; the Kiranti root #3378 PKir *pwam CHEST is from #137 PTB *pʷam BELLY / STOMACH / WAIST.

#2 PTB *s‑kəw BODY / CHEST / THORAX / CORPSE is the source for WT sku‑braŋ ‘chest (resp.)’, and also of the honorific prefix used with many body parts in WT. It should be kept distinct from #560 PTB *k(r)u CHEST / RIB, which is reflected in Thakali 'ku, Kaike gu, etc.

It is interesting to note that both ‘chest’ and ‘trunk’ are ambiguous in English between body-part and receptacle!
