Dravidian etymology :

Proto-Dravidian : *aṭ- ~ *aḍú-
Meaning : to evaporate, dry up; to cook, boil
Proto-South Dravidian: *aṭ- ~ *aḍu-
Proto-Telugu : *aṭ- ~ *aḍu-
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *aṭ-
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *aṭ-
Notes : A clear distinction between the two stems can be demonstrated on Kannada evidence: aḍu = "to cook, boil", aṭṭu = "to evaporate, dry up". However, in Central Dravidian languages only the monosyllabic variant has been preserved. It is not excluded that the two variants represent originally different roots; a final decision cannot be reached without external comparison. // Present in 4/6 branches.
