Dear Malayalam- and Tamil-knowing friends (calling Vijayasankar ji),

I got to know from Sandhya ji in a personal mail some days back about mix-up of Malayalam names in my notes of Vitex trifolia and V. negundo.

She has helped me with names as they must be:
കരുനൊച്ചി karunocchi (or കരിനൊച്ചി karinocchi)  = Vitex negundo
വെണ്‍നൊച്ചി vennocchi = Vitex trifolia

നൊച്ചി nocchi = generic name for most of the species of Vitex
കരു (or കരി) karu (or kari) = black
വെണ്‍ ven = white


Based on above names in Malayalam and their meanings, the names in Tamil would be as following ...
கருநொச்சி karunocchi = Vitex negundo
வெண்ணொச்சி vennocchi = Vitex trifolia
Please validate.



This query because the entries in online dictionary seems to be quite contrary:
கருநொச்சி karu-nocci ... Vitex trifolia ... http://dsalsrv02.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/philologic/getobject.pl?c.2:1:4287.tamillex
வெண்ணொச்சி vennocci ... Vitex negundo ... http://dsalsrv02.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/philologic/getobject.pl?c.12:1:3635.tamillex



Regards.
Dinesh

Dinesh ji,

நொச்சி nocchi = Vitex negundo
கருநொச்சி karunocchi = the purple form of Vitex negundo (often referred as var. purpurascens). [கரு karu = black, denoting the dark purple form of leaves and flowers]
