The main verb that this AV is derived from is »ªë tallu `push, shove.' In addition to its basic aspectual notion implying
completion, »ªë tallu also gives the notion that an
action `got rid of' something; this may range from the satisfaction of having
cleaned up some sort of mess to that of giving all one's wealth to the poor.
There is also the notion that the recipients of this distribution are
unspecified. That is, a sentence like ÀÔ¾¨ äöÓ»´õ´×Ä ×´Ôà¢â
»ªÄÕÆÔ¨ raaman pustahangale koduttu tallinaan
`Raman gave away his books' will not have a dative-marked recipient. Verbs
marked with »ªë tallu, though in themselves completive,
may have completive ÂÕà (v)idu attached, for good measure,
especially in the past tense.
