Did you have any particular examples in mind?IIr lost the contrast *l : *r, which doesn't mean that the merged phoneme was realised as [r] in all dialects and all contexts. Some Iranian dialects (Alanic, Ossetic) show so-called "lambdacism", i.e. *l/*r > l. Old Indic had a dialectal component in which [l] was pronounced, and interdialectal borrowing (plus loans from non-Indo-Aryan languages) "reintroduced" [l] in some Sanskrit words.Piotr----- Original Message -----From: João Simões Lopes FilhoSent: Sunday, October 22, 2000 7:44 PMSubject: [tied] IE -rl- > Indo-Iranian ?Joao wrote:What's the result in Indo-Iranian (IIr) of PIE -RL- ?
