Dravidian etymology: Dravidian etymology
Tamil : ayir (-pp-, -tt-)
Tamil meaning : to suspect; n. doubt, suspicion
Tamil derivates : ayirppu doubt, suspicion; aiyam doubt, uncertainty, scepticism
Malayalam : ayyam
Malayalam meaning : doubt
Kannada : ǝyb
Kannada meaning : (Gul.) doubt, suspicion
Kannada derivates : naccu, nasa doubt (Kitt.) (?)
Notes : Kittel's forms with initial n- do not fit into the picture at all from a strictly phonetic point of view (the fact that *ń- is regularly eliminated in some positions in some Dravidian languages does not mean that we can easily correlate any two Kannaḍa dialectal variants with and without the initial nasal). They are rather to be compared with similar Tamil roots like naccu 'tease, vex, trouble'.
