Probably. My printed Pokorny is falling apart and missing the last two
pages (I have them somewhere), and I can't check the Leiden online version
(again). The other cognates were Greek, if I remember correctly. If the
*g^ is really a *g^ and not a *g^h, then Slavic does not require
laryngeals, by Winter's Law, but quite possibly the Greek forms (re:gnumi?)
