Expressivität oder Lautgesetz? Drei griechische Etymologien

Expressivität oder Lautgesetz? Drei griechische Etymologien, by Daniel Kölligan, International Journal of Diachronic Linguistics and Linguistic Reconstruction 14 (2017): 31–49.

Abstract:
The paper argues that the assumption of irregular processes such as taboo distortion, ad hoc dissimilation, and free phonological variation is unnecessary if the attested forms can be shown to be the result of regular sound change and common morphophonological processes. For Gk. φλάω/θλάω 'to crush' a paradim split is assumed, for Gk. ὑδέω 'to call' a metaphorical use of a root meaning 'to weave', and for τερπικέραυνος an original compound 'hol-ding the lightning in (his) hand'.
