the semantics of *g^Hel- was such that the root was frequently
employed for naming green, yellow or orange stuffs and objects (the
yolk of an egg, bile, gold, various plants, etc.) in historically
known languages. It's a far shot from establishing its PIE meaning
as 'greenish-yellow' or the like...
Sanskrit has some compounds which indicate harid- as the
root, 'greenish-yellow', e.g.,
haridvarn.a, `of a yellowish golden colour'
haridambara , `wearing a yellow or green garment'
Is harid- relatable to *g^Hel- ?
