Proto-South Dravidian : *mōg-
Meaning : to eat, drink
Dravidian etymology: Dravidian etymology
Tamil : moci (-pp-, -tt-)
Tamil meaning : to eat
Tamil derivates : (?) māntu (mānti-) to eat, drink, experience, enjoy
Malayalam : mōkuka, (?) mōntuka
Malayalam meaning : to drink, sip
Malayalam derivates : mōyikka to give to sip; mōval a gulp
Notes : The root here is *mōg-, as evidenced by Tamil moci < *mōg-i-, and confirmed by external data. Therefore, Malayalam forms like mōyikka should be explained as due to a reinterpretation of the form mōkuka as *mō+k+uka. However, Mal. mōntuka, Tam. māntuka hardly belong here at all.
