Proto-Indo-European and Proto-Dravidian Cognates

On this auspicious occasion of  Vasant Panchami, when the worship of the goddess of knowledge and arts Saraswati also happens , I present to you a special post, focusing on a special relationship between two language families, Indo-European and Dravidian .

So ,we see relatively a large amount of cognates and root sharing, between Proto-Indo-European and Proto-Dravidian . I must inform that not all of them are exclusive to PIE and PD , several are shared with Proto-Afrasian and in few occasions Uralic, Altaic etc also. I must  say thanks to Dr. Alan R. Bomhard , whose great work A Comprehensive Introduction to Nostratic Comparative Linguistics was the reason, that  first made me see this remarkable relation of Dravidian and Indo-European . Talking about relations, it should be mentioned here, that PIE shares the largest amount of cognates with Proto-Afrasian (with grammatical relations also) and it can be  emphatically suggested excluding the non-IE neolithic substratum, seen among some Western and Southern European IE languages!. For shared roots and cognates between PA and PIE see here for example .But that's not the end by far!, as  PIE  shares a special relation, to Sumerian and Hurro-Urartian too , see here and here , making the claims made here for example totally unacceptable and baseless . All of which perhaps suggests , common genesis around Near East ! . Can Dravidian be added to the same category also? , frankly I don't have the answer and I think not anyone honestly , but it is indeed remarkable, that many of the forms attested in Dravidian are in Centum and non-Indic type form , which clearly rules out borrowing from Indo-Aryan as many are not even found in Indo-Aryan and in Eastern IE languages!. Can this mean that in India other unattested IE dialects once existed?. We do know for example that there is Bangani Language in Garhwal , which clearly has Centum features , perhaps we have to think of a two layered Indo-European expansion to South Asia. Where the first was closer to Centum and second brought Satemization.

Note : In this  post ,I have mostly taken the roots and words from Bomhard's work,  while linking them with other standard sources.  I have edited them, when found necessary and have kept the sources he cites , on some occasions as well . I didn't list here all of his comparisons as I didn't find the rest very robust , but certainly there are more and I will list them too , I am studying on the matter and I know I will add further , in near future , you know friends keep studying , it never stops . The more study you do , the more you learn about how you are deeply related to the sciences, arts , culture and also history , there my friends, there lies the freedom!.

Hey N,

I feel Tamil is closer to germanic/english than PIE proper.
e.g. compare tamil cennai with english chin vs PIE *gwenu and sanskrit hanu

another example... kiTTu is closer in sound and meaning to english get vs PIE *ghodh

Compare NIA gAnTh with germanic/english knot, latin node. the affinity is higher with germanic and cannot be explained as being derived from sankrtit grantha either for NIA or dravidian kaN.

cognates for cow are not convincing between PIE and dravidian.

postneo said...

2nd thoughts

there seem to be two parallel similar roots tri-"koNa", poly-"gon" , corner etc and dravidian kaNa

and knot, nodus, grantha(sans), gAnTha(NIA)

compare tamil kavuL vs english jowl

Great work! About the IE roots, they are presented in different ways, mostly according to the Glottalic theory followed by Bomhard, some in more traditional ways. I find remarkable how the vowel in Dravidian is often a, as in Indo-Aryan but probably also according to the most original PIE.

Good work :)
Though I have to say that myself do not believe in the accuracy of modern day reconstructions. This is what Mallory and Adams say :

Also this

So if we gain info on lost ancient IE languages like Scythian, Thracian, Cimmerian, Dacian etc and their cognates, it would change the current reconstructions :) We know how the discovery of lost Hittite and 'Tocharian' languages changed the the entire situation of early IE studies.

Same is the case with PD, which mostly relies on living languages. Nothing much is studied about language of hunter-gatherer Dravidian tribes like Cholanaikkans who still live deep inside the forests!

Anyway, this is a good effort, keep it up!

Nice effort

Bull, ox in PIE and Dravidian is also present in Sumerian. :) Farmer's word.?

Btw what is the age of proto Dravidian? Do it fit into farming period or it is younger?
