Notes : Some typically "plant root" problems with this etymon. In Tamil there are non-geminated forms suggesting a variant like *adá-. Much more interesting is the variant arti in Tulu; in the absolute majority of cases -r- found in Tulu clusters turns out to be original, and thus PSDR *arti is not entirely out of the question.
