Asterisk.svg
This Proto-Indo-European entry contains reconstructed words and roots. As such, the term(s) in this entry are not directly attested, but are hypothesized to have existed based on comparative evidence.

Proto-Indo-EuropeanEdit

RootEdit

*bʰuH-

  1. to become, to grow, to appear

Derived termsEdit

CommentEdit

Some sources such as LIV:98-101 reconstruct the full-grade form *bʰewh₂-, *bʰweh₂-, solely on the basis of Italic and Celtic preterite and subjunctive stem, which are according to Jasanoff 2003:112-113 unjustified, and the root laryngeal cannot be precisely determined.

DescendantsEdit

In many descendants, this root formed a verbal paradigm together with *h₁es- and *h₂wes-.
