Could this root be a derivation (i.e. a possible extension) from *h₁ey-? The meanings seem very similar, and it wouldn't be a stretch to assume *h₁ey -> *h₁y-eh₂, with some kind aktionsart-type nuance being added; the addition of an initial *h₁ to this root would still make sense considering its descendants.

Anything is possible in theory, but there isn't any solid evidence. So no. —CodeCat 15:01, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
