Comments: JLTT 709. Usually treated as a fusion of *ki- 'having come' + *itar- 'arrive', which is most probably a folk etymology in the light of external evidence. Accent reflexes in modern dialects are somewhat aberrant.

Kui-Kuwi etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *gṇā-
Meaning : to pass, cross
Gondwan etymology: Gondwan etymology
Kui : gṛāsa (gṛāsi-) "to pass something over or through, pass a thing through the outstretched legs"
Kuwi (Fitzgerald) : grāncali "to cross over"
Kuwi (Schulze) : gla'nai "to pass, cross (river)"
Kuwi (Israel) : gṇaʔ- "to cross"
Additional forms : Also Kui gṛāpa (gṛāt-) to cross, cross over, ford, pass by; n. act of crossing, fording, passing by; ḍṛāpa (ḍṛāt-) to step over, overflow; n. step, still, threshold; Kuwi_Isr gṇap- to take across; kaṭu time (suitable period)
Notes : Most of the forms point to a vocalic auslaut of the base plus -p-. However, Kui gṛāsa and Kuwi_F grāncali only can be traced back to *gṛāc- and *gṛānc- correspondingly; a reconstruction like *gṛānc- with loss of nasal in Kui would be possible, although it is hard to prove because of the uniqueness of the case. The initial combination is reconstructed as *gṇ-; however, in Kui gṛ- is the only example of such a combination which is, moreover, probably misspelled for gr-. But Kuwi data makes it clear the second consonant is retroflex, and external data confirm its exact character. The initial cluster ḍṛ- is extremely rare as well, occurring only in a single expressive lexeme (in a few others it's a variant of ḍr-); therefore, the semantical differentiation between gṛāpa and ḍṛāpa is either secondary or invented by Whinfield. As for differences between gr- and ḍr-, my observations are as follows: PK *gṛ- (where -ṛ- < PDR *-ṛ-) > Kui gr-, but PK *gḍ- (where -ḍ- < PDR *-ṭ-) > Kui ḍr-. Kuwi_Isr gṇap- is probably a secondary causative (or the differentiation is secondary; remember the original causative -p- is often preserved in Kuwi_Isr after vocalic auslauts of the base), and kaṭu is borrowed from some SDR language.
