Notes :The development *cut_-ǐ- > *cuc- (in the past stem) was most probably hindered in Kota because of dissimilative reasons; later the present stem became influenced by the past stem. Considering, however, that even so Kota *cut_- rather than cut- would be expected, it is also possible that the Kota form is a borrowing from Kannada.
