Re: [tied] PIE blood

The basic 'blood' term in PIE is *h1esh2-r/*h1esh2-(e)n- (e.g. Hitt. eshar, eshan-, Skt. ásRk, asnáH, Latv. asinis [pl.], Gk. e:ar). The derivation of <sanguis> is somewhat problematic. One current view, which I, for one, am reluctant to accept, is that it represents *h1sh2(e)n-gW- > *sangW-, the above root with an "extension" allegedly appearing also in Skt. asRk (asRg) < *h1esh2r-gW. This is too convoluted for my taste, which doesn't mean that I have a better idea.
