You are the one confused.
From where do you think affixes come? From the fertile field of someone's
Affixes begin life as words, usually in the simplest form of the root.
In the case of suffixes, they begin as the second element of a compound,
which, over time, fuses with the first element.
Though some sources of inflectional affixes are more difficult to
conclusively recognize, most are quite transparent.

The pronoun is *yo: *CV; *i is not a true vowel in PIE since it is _always_
the result of avocalic [j].

As usual, you have nt done your homework.
The dative is -*He(i).
The locative is -*y(e) or *-Ha.
Miguel explained nothing. He sidestepped the issue.
The fact is the example he cited was wrong and he refuses to admit it.
He also refused recently to go into it.
Your memory fails you.
We were not talking about locative but about an instrumental.
Can you never get it right?
