To sum up:

*k^we:rh2(-ih2) > *cwa:r-a: > *c^orë > sorrë


that will imply what Decev menat that the pie /e:/ should have been
spoken almost like /a/ in Thracian. He means there should be an
oscilation between /e/ and /a/ and he gives some exampley of glosses
where the same name are written with /e/ or with /a/.
The questiona here for me is why *k^we:rh2 ?
