Dravidian etymology: Dravidian etymology
Kurukh : argnā (argyas)
Malto : arge
Notes : A good example on the differentiation of the 'active' and 'concealed' -j- in Kurukh verbal stems: the -j-preterite and simple preterite stems respectively reflect the unmarked and the causative meanings. In Malto the "concealed" -j- is implicitly indicated by the stop -g- (*arg-nā would have yielded *arg̣-e).
Additional forms : Also KUR argtaʔānā, argaʔānā to make climb, lift up, etc.; MLT argtre to lift, raise.
Number in DED : 231
