Nostratic etymology: Nostratic etymology
Proto-South Dravidian: *avi-
Proto-Telugu : *avi-
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *avi-
Notes : The variation in close, but different meanings suggests that the root may have been open to semantic contamination with several others (cf. in particular Tamil forms with initial n- which are contaminated phonetically as well). Konḍa namb- 'to cool down (fire)' is given by Burrow & Emeneau as a questionable cognate, but is certainly a different root (there is no way whatsoever that it could correspond to Gondi aviyānā 'to be tired'!). // Present in 3/6 branches.

Proto-South Dravidian: *avi-
