Reading this again, I'm not sure if you're asking me
to clarify the meaning of Rule 2. Since you gave
evidence earlier that PIE *n. appears as an before
da/do/du I made this rule (similar to sporadic cases
in Latin) lowering e>a before nd / nYdY etc.
2. e(>e~)>a before N (syllable break) voiced stop with
same place of articulation (as the nasal)
With the other rules I've given basically e>i before
Ng and e>a before nd.
Of course, I may have to modify this rule if there's
more evidence against part of it.
