- I couldn't sort it out from that. How could one tell what poly was short for? Books give more context. Anyone who could figure out a good search to separate wheat from chaff ought to be able to cite it, but I don't have the patience for it. DCDuring TALK 18:43, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
- I wonder if perhaps the definitions are too precise. I've heard poly used as an abbreviation for nearly every word which begins with poly-, largely dependent upon context. Now, this would be a nigh impossible claim to back up, and so perhaps it should simply be left as is. But, I still think I'm right on this one. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 22:22, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

- Tamil isn't a related language, so the Tamil word isn't, strictly speaking, a cognate. Tamil does have extensive vocabulary borrowed from Sanskrit, which is related, but the Sanscrit form is पुरु (purú). See πολύς (polús) for more information. Chuck Entz (talk) 21:22, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
