I can't repeat everything I know in every sentence. The r/nt-stems
have the same loc.sg. *-en and *-en-i with the same form regardless
of the presence or absence of the *-i. My theory about it is that it
is juncture-final and that there used to be an enclitic marking the
locative case. It takes a following enclitic to explain the funny
accentuation on the last slot of the stem regardless of the lexical
accent. The enclitic must have been lost; perhaps it consisted of a
short vowel which was always pre-accented.

Well, I frankly don't think that is worth much, and I do not
understand what it is supposed to show us here.
