Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *aẓál-
Meaning : to burn; (> to grieve)
Proto-South Dravidian: *aẓal-
Proto-Telugu : *aḍal-
Notes : Cf., perhaps, PGn *eṛi- 'to burn'. Burrow & Emeneau unhesitatingly join the Gondwan forms with the SDR-Telugu item in one entry, but if the root vowel in PGn has indeed to be reconstructed as *e (based primarily on Gondi reflexation, since all the other forms are syncopated), the etymology becomes somewhat problematic. The Gondwan forms themselves are questionable inasmuch as every subgroup has its own derivational suffix. // Present in 3/6 branches.
