Belari [brw] in inland near Belari town where the three states meet, not on the coast. We don't have RS that this other Belari is a distinct language. (Not even sure about the first.) — kwami (talk) 23:31, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

The article mentions a Dravidian substratum in North India, but I thought there was evidence of pre-Dravidian substrata in South India too, indicating that Dravidian speakers migrated into South India from further north (specifically the northwest, ultimately perhaps from Iran). I think Witzel mentions something to this effect. There's also Toda, which is strikingly divergent typologically. Anyone know more about this topic? --Florian Blaschke (talk) 15:25, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
