Appendix:Proto-Indo-European/méh₂tēr -> Appendix:Proto-Indo-European/mātēr

This entry has been created here with name méh₂tēr by a mistake. Although there is a long vowel in the second position, the laryngeal theory does not predict a laryngeal there. See here for example.--Priios 12:35, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Pokorny's dictionaries are kind of outdated by modern standards though... —CodeCat 12:50, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you Priios for doing this the 'standard' way. Anyway guys, evidence? Mglovesfun (talk) 12:57, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

  • The American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots also lists māter [1] --Priios 13:50, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
  • A GRAMMAR OF MODERN INDO-EUROPEAN Third Edition (2011) by Carlos Quiles Fernando and López-Menchero also list mātēr (the first edition from 2007 by Kárlos Kūriákī can be accessed here: [2] ) --Priios 14:35, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
Modern Indo-European is essentially a conlang based on reconstructed PIE. It's not really a proper source for IE reconstructions. —CodeCat 14:38, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
