Dravidian etymology :

Proto-Dravidian : *pur-i-
Meaning : to curl, twist
Nostratic etymology: Nostratic etymology
Proto-South Dravidian: *pur-i-
Proto-Telugu : *pur-i
Notes : B&E put this together with *pir-i- 'to twist', and while both roots really have the same semantics, phonetically the comparison is out of the question, since alternation *i/*u does not exist anywhere in such a context (no other examples of *pir/*pur can be found).
