Protoform: QALI.1A [PN] Bare, exposed, clearly visible, transparent (of water)

Description: Bare, exposed, clearly visible, transparent (of water)
Reconstruction: Reconstructs to PN: Polynesian

*0 >> PN *faka-qali "show, reveal"
*1 Cf. TA *are-are 'clear, open'
*5 PMP *Rari9 "zum vorschein kommen" (Dpf. 1938).
*8 Note: Dempwolf's R depended on a BV Ngadju-Dayak form and the absence of glottal stop in his TON source. Given the close meanings and the glottal stops in TON and REN, PMP *qari9 is supported.
