N. caew n. “lair, resting-place” (Category: Home)

N. caew, n. “lair, resting-place” (Category: Home)

A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “lair, resting-place” under the root ᴹ√KAY “lie down”, apparently the cognate of ᴹQ. kaima “bed” (Ety/KAY). If so, then the ancient [m] became [v] and then developed into [w] as it did after i- and e-diphthongs.
