I don't think I believe in this one[edit]

Is this a verb employing the participle suffix -ent? I would think the Germanic form is a compound with the second element being from dkmtom, as in the Slavic words for 200, 300, etc. Atomic PIE roots with 5 consonants don't exist so this needs an explanation. I admit I don't really get where Baltic comes from unless they just loaned it from pre Germanic. Lollipop (talk) 22:10, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

that said, *tuHsont doesn't explain the Baltic very well either ... where did the k come from? Lollipop (talk) 23:18, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
