Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *aḌ[Ḍ]- (?)
Meaning : thirst; hunger
Proto-South Dravidian: *aḍi-
Proto-Telugu : *ḍa-pi
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *aḍḍ- ~ *anḍ- (-*-nd_-)
Notes : A rather odd bunch of forms. First of all, Kan. nīr-aṛke is not easy to trace back to nīr-aḍike; its second component should better fit in with such forms as aṛipu 'desire, affection', aṛkar_ 'love' (see PSDR *aṛi-, *aṛk-). Second, Kolami aḍḍ- and Parji/Gadba anḍ- cannot go back to one and the same prototype either (the former suggests *aḍḍ-, the latter *anḍ- or *and_-). We are obviously dealing with different etymons here - or at least a mix of original and contaminated forms. Dubious. // Present in 3/6 branches.
