Reconstruction

edit

It remains unclear whether *t was geminated or not. Although most reflexes show a simple *t, the sporadic distribution of *tt suggests that *yẹtti was the original pronunciation, sustained by Clauson (1972),[1] and that the geminates were later simplified in each branch independently.
