OK, thanks for the clarification. You've strengthened your case and I retract the reservation about initial p/w. So, hypothetically, the Hattic pronunciation may have beeen *[fe/il]. That's closer to *pVr-, though the borrowing hypothesis is still far from self-evident and would require some further explanation.

And yes, there apparently is even p/w alternation for the word for "house" (pil, pel, wil, wel). Some p-words don't exhibit the alternation in written Hattic, some do. The "house" word does.
