Kannada derivates :(Hav.) muju black monkey; (Gowda, Dr. Ling., p. 98) mucca black-faced monkey
Kodagu meaning :langur
Tulu :mujji, mujju
Tulu meaning :a black monkey
Notes :Depending on the suffix, the lexeme is present in two different forms: 1) *múc-a (Gowda mucca, Kod. muccë, possibly Malayalam mocca, although the -o- still has to be accounted for); 2) *muǯ-ú (Tam. mucu, Kan. musu, muju). Tulu mujji somewhat stands out in this context, as it can only be traced back to *múǯǯ-i. Secondary derivation from a lost **muju < *muǯ-ú? Unclear.
