Proto-Dravidian : *alág-
Meaning : blade; splint
Nostratic etymology: Nostratic etymology
Proto-South Dravidian: *alag-
Proto-Telugu : *alVg-
Notes : Tamil distinguishes between alaku 'blade' and alakku 'splint'; however, given the general lack of stability among 2nd syllable stops, this differentiation should probably be considered secondary. The word formally resembles a verbal derivative, but no verbal stem like *alV- 'cut' or 'be sharp' is found in Dravidian. // Present in 2/6 branches.
