thigh, leg (only attested in possessed form and in compounds) (see Karttunen)
-QUĒZ only attested in possessed form and in compounds thigh, leg / su muslo, su pierna (T,Z) [(5)Tp.133,156,(1)Zp.160]. This seems to be related to QUEXĪL-LI 'groin' but differs in vowel length in the first syllable. See QUEXĪL-LI.
