Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *adáḷ-
Meaning : to start, be alarmed
Proto-South Dravidian: *adaḷ-
Proto-Telugu : *adal-
Notes : Joined by Burrow & Emeneau with *adír- 'to shake, tremble'. If we think of the original root as *ad- with later suffixal additions, this is quite probable. However, the fact of there being two phonologically different stems cannot be denied (cf. Tamil atir vs. ataṭṭu < *ataḷ-tu; Tel. adaru vs. adalu), and although the meanings are not always differentiated (cf., however, the differentiation in Telugu), this is sufficient evidence for at least granting them two different entries. // Present in 2/6 branches.
