And what does the full grade of Gmc. *an&ð- and Balto-Slavic *anHt-
suggest to you? My interpretation of Miguel's suggestion is that the
"preaspirated" allophone of *t arose at a historical stage in the
development of PIE when thematic *-ó- was inherently accented and
*-i-/*-u- were inherently unaccented. Accented *-tí- is a secondary
development (though of course of PIE date).
It's hard to believe that
*h2nh2-ti > a:ti
*strH2mn > stari:-man
in the same language.
In view of :
And H2neH2t forms
which shows a full vowel
could appear anywhere in the skeleton.
