Latvian alnis is not an instance of "Rozwadowski rule", but a cognate of a different word - Common Slavic *olni, which I will create shortly. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 17:17, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

What rule is that exactly? Is it a rule that explains alternations between initial a- and e-? —CodeCat 17:19, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't explain anything, it just says that there is no rule and that sometimes random alternations occur. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 18:24, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
