Kui-Kuwi etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Kui-Kuwi : *aḍḍ- (?)
Meaning : to obstruct; screen, interception
Gondwan etymology: Gondwan etymology
Kui : aḍa "a screen, an intervening or intercepting object (said to be < Oraon)"
Kuwi (Schulze) : aḍḍe ānai "to resist"
Sunkarametta Kuwi : addu ānai "to obviate"
Additional forms : Also Kui ḍākoli a hide shield; Kuwi_S addunga across (in measuring); aḍḍe ānai to resist
Notes : Kui ḍākoli is very hard to compare with Kuwi forms, for in this case we should suppose a separate Kui reduction. Much more probable is that it is derived from Kui ḍāki shell (of tortoise, etc.), cf. DED 2989. The root itself displays an extremely rare case of PK (and probably PDR, cf. the dictionary) voiced geminate; in fact, it is so rare it is not excluded that the root itself was borrowed from Telugu.
Number in DED : 83
