Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *min_-
Meaning : to lighten; spark; star
Nostratic etymology: Nostratic etymology
Proto-South Dravidian: *min_-, *mīn-
Proto-Telugu : *miṇ-
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *min-
Proto-Gondi-Kui : *miṇ-
Proto-North Dravidian : *bīṇ-kō
Notes : If the PNDR forms really belong here, this is an almost unique case of PDR short/long vowel gradation (normally only met in SDR). On the other hand, the lack of *mīṇ forms in Telugu, PKG and PGn make it very doubtful; a South Dravidian 'vrddhisation' still has to be suspected.
