>Wot a coincidence. The Prevli word for year that I used _nnavge_ [(@)'ndavge]is
derived from the word for 'spin, revolve' /nabiN/. It is actually somewhat
obsolete, as almost everyone uses Kash _pehan_ ['pexan], in Prevli ['pehan]; if
it is ever nativized, it would be /pehan/, surface form _pe:nä_.
