Dravidian etymology: Dravidian etymology
Kurukh : akhuā
Notes : Inlaut -kh- in Kurukh is provisionally traced back to PNDR *-G-; normally a phonetic sequence like -khu- is not met in Kurukh, therefore the reconstruction is quite arbitrary (even if the root is most probably of PDR origin).
Additional forms : Also KUR akrārnā to germinate, shoot, sprout (although [Pfeiffer:168] suggests borrowing from IA, cf. HJ. ãkurā 'sprout', etc.).
Number in DED : 15
