South Dravidian etymology: South Dravidian etymology
Kota : āvaj "a yawn"
Toda : ōpüɫ̣y- (ōpüɫ̣c-)
Notes : In Kota *āvaḷǐ > *āvalǐ (weaking of retroflex articulation in a long word?) > *āvaj. Toda ōpüɫ̣y- = Koḍ. āvali-c-; inlaut -ü- < *-a- under the influence of both labialized ō and front ǐ, but -p- is rather mysterious (by all means -f- should be expected in this position).
Number in DED : 392
