  This reconstruction page has been nominated for deletion(+)
Please see that page for discussion and justifications beyond the initial comment of: "I assume this was taken from De Vaan's "Etymological Dictionary of Latin and Other Italic Languages", page: 298, but he does not give a noun "*imā", but rather a verb "*imā(je-)"". Feel free to edit this reconstruction page as normal, though do not remove the {{rfd}} until the debate has finished.
