Meaning : good life (having to do with a good meal)
Proto-Nilgiri : *ar_b
Notes : A Nilgiri isogloss. Burrow & Emeneau imply a dental -r-, but an alveolar -r_- is equally possible due to a peculiar development in this kind of cluster (cf., for instance, *ir_umbu 'ant' > Kota irb, Toda ɨrb). If so, the word is clearly comparable with Kan. ar_ambe 'digestion' and may simply represent a figurative extension of that meaning, especially considering that the element of satiation is important for the Nilgiri semantics; see PSDR *ar_-.

Tamil meaning : iron
Malayalam : ayir, ayiram
Malayalam meaning : any ore
Kannada : aduru
Kannada meaning : native metal
Tulu : ajirda karba

Notes : If the forms compared in DEDR are all related, only a form like *ar_ir- can explain all the phonetic diversity. In Tulu the development *-r_i- > -ji- is regular. In the other languages the change of *r_ to y or d is triggered by dissimilation with the following -r-; dissimilation may also underlie the dialectal -l in Tamil. This is, however, not the main root for 'iron' in SDR and has no parallels outside that subgroup; an external source should probably be looked for.

Notes : It is well possible there are actually two roots contaminated in this entry, one represented by Tam. acai, acaŋku, etc., the other represented by Tam. ayar, Mal. ayakka, Kod. ay-, etc. Dialectal alternations of -s-/-j- in the auslaut position are rather common, of course, but in Kod. we should expect -s-, not -j-, and the difference between Tam. acakku/ayakku and ayar is rather striking. However, internal derivation is still not excluded, so for the moment we prefer to keep both variants in the same entry.
