Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *ap-, *áp-aḷi-
Meaning : to stick (with hand), plaster
Proto-South Dravidian: *ap-
Proto-Telugu : *appaḷi-
Notes : The Telugu forms are somewhat dubious (only the derivative in -aḷi- is found, which could be a borrowing from Kannaḍa). Nevertheless, this is at least a fairly sutrdy SDR root, and it certainly has nothing to do with PDR *čap- 'clap hands' despite Burrow & Emeneau's comparison (the latter always preserves the affricate). // Present in 2/6 branches.
