Etymology 1[edit]

Old Iranian (compare Old Persian brizi, Pashto [script needed] (wrižē), Kurdish birinc), in turn probably borrowed from Sanskrit व्रीहि (vrīhí). The Sanskrit term is either a loan from Dravidian – compare Proto-Dravidian *wariñci (rice) – or, according to Witzel, borrowed from an unknown South Asian, possibly Austroasiatic, source, with the Dravidian word being an independent borrowing of another variant.[1] Old Tamil அரிசி (arici), from earlier *ariki, is not the source of the Greek word, however, according to Krishnamurti (2003) apud Witzel (2009).[2] In contrast, Witzel (1999) had maintained, following Southworth (1979), that the Greek term goes back to Old Tamil arici – itself from an older form *ariki, an early (ca. 1500 BC) borrowing from Munda according to Southworth (1988).[3]
