With a medial *-e- you'd get a different mood (subjunctive). The 3sg indicative is *ed-ti [etsti] in the present tense (ignoring the initial *h1-), *ed-t [etst] in the preterite. The perfect seems to have been *e:d-e.

How should one write the 3ps of *ed-? If I recall, I mistakingly wrote
**edet, unintentionally putting a thematic between *d and *t... but then
what does one write? Shouldn't it be written *ett (whilst phonetically

And while we're on the subject, shouldn't *ed- be in the perfect in this
particular case? Damn, what the hell is the 3ps perfect of *ed-... *edede??
*e:de? Help, I'm having another grammatical headache. IE is too complicated.
Why can't it be like Esperanto :)
