Proto–Italic laryngeals in the context ClHC– and new Italic and Celtic etymological connections
, by Blanca María Prósper
, Rivista di Linguistica e dialettologia, Roma, 2017.
This paper is concerned with unexpected phonetic outcomes in the Italic languages in environments containing a combination of laryngeals, labials and laterals. It will be argued that phonotactic problems may ultimately lie behind a seemingly unmotivated absence of the laryngeal in several verbal formations based on set roots. A detailed account of the outcome of IE *-lw- and *-lHw- in Latin is included, as well as etymologies for fulvus and mullus.
