*bʰ- rootsEdit

I'm skeptical of this. Could you check them out? @DerRudymeister, where are you getting these? The vowel *a in PIE is very rare. —JohnC5 16:26, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Some of them are very obviously not roots either, so they should be removed. —CodeCat 16:30, 3 January 2017 (UTC)


This edit was odd enough that I thought I'd get a second opinion. Cleasby-Vigfusson has something else altogether. Chuck Entz (talk) 14:59, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

But the word in CV is a different word; it says it's a hapax meaning "oats". It is true that in early loanwords, Irish replaces Latin p with c because /p/ wasn't a native sound in Primitive Irish, so porphura > corcur/corcair is certainly plausible. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 15:05, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
