Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *alár-
Meaning : to blossom
Proto-South Dravidian: *alar-
Proto-Telugu : *alar-
Notes : The stem is never met without the final resonant, although it certainly cannot be guaranteed that *-r- was not detachable as a suffix in PDR. It is interesting to note the similarity between *alár- and PDR *mala[r]- with pretty much the same meaning. However, to treat this case as an irregular development *m- > 0- (see, e. g., [Андронов 1994: 86] ) is hardly admissible. Much more probable is semantic confusion between two originally different roots; in fact, SDR malar 'to blossom' may eventually be nothing but the result of contamination between *alár- and *mal- 'fertile, to abound'. // Present in 2/6 branches.
