Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *áṭa-
Meaning : inner side of roof (loft, attic, supporting bamboo framework etc.)
Proto-South Dravidian: *aṭa-
Proto-Telugu : *aṭa-
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *aṭa
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *aṭ-
Proto-North Dravidian : *aṭ-ā
Notes : While some of the forms adduced by Burrow & Emeneau may look like later reborrowings, the root as a whole is widely represented in Dravidian and is most probably PDR in origin. The corresponding IA root *aṭṭa- "high" (Turner No. 180) has no Indo-European etymology and must have been borrowed from an early Dravidian dialect. // Present in 5/6 branches.
