Dravidian etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Dravidian : *ándug-
Meaning : clearing nut plant
Nostratic etymology: Nostratic etymology
Proto-South Dravidian: *andug-
Proto-Telugu : *andug-
Proto-Kolami-Gadba : *ā̆ndug
Notes : A rather local root. The Kolami word could be thought of as a borrowing from Telugu, but that does not explain the irregular vowel length in M. B. Emeneau's recordings (although the entry does bear the tag of 'recording uncertain'). The second syllable (*-ug-) is detachable as a 'weak' suffix, but no individual *and- 'sāl tree' is attested. // Present in 3/6 branches.
