I did not write "bare *Co:C noun".

I think nominative -*s is a suffix for most people.

According to Pokorny, Greek <phôs> is from *bha:u- via <páo(u)s>.

I have no reason for disbelieving that.


light Phô(s) is *bhoH2
boat nâu(s) is *neH2w

*bheH2u should be **phâu in Greek.

I haven't checked Pokorny
but this *bha:u is obviously wrong.
