I put the following proposal to you. An early form of PIE did have the
vowels *i and *u. However, when stressed these vowels diphthongized to
*ei and *eu. Thus the zero grades represent the original forms. In
this light verbal roots in *u and *i are easy to find since the
zero-grade represents the actual vocalic structure.
