Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *alái-
Meaning : to rinse
Proto-South Dravidian: *alai-
Proto-Telugu : *ala-
Notes : Burrow & Emeneau also include Kui akali 'rinsing' in the comparison, but the relation between these forms would have to be quite mysterious (metathesis from *ala-ki?). Auslaut -ai- is well reconstructible on the basis of SDR, which makes it possible to distinguish between this PDR root and, say, PDR *alá- 'to make verbal noise'. // Present in 2/6 branches.
