Dravidian etymology :

Proto-Dravidian : *aṬ-
Meaning : earthen pot
Proto-South Dravidian: *aḍi-gara(i)
Proto-Telugu : *aṭ(ṭ)ika
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *aṭka
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *aṭka
Proto-North Dravidian : *aṛī
Notes : SDR forms, on one hand, and Telugu, PKG, and PGn forms, on the other, can hardly be traced back to the same stem; the former look like quadrisyllabic compounds (*aḍí-KarV, with the vowel in a weak position) whereas the latter can only go back to *áṭikV, a trisyllabic stem with the vowel in a strong position and a nominal suffix tacked on at the end. Nevertheless, if Burrow & Emeneau are correct about comparing the forms to PDR *áṭ- ~ *aḍú- "to cook", the two variants may indeed share the same archaic root. // Present in 5/6 branches.
