The high frequency of the *-dH- "extension" (also in environments where we would not expect to find a voiced aspirated stop, i.e. in roots beginning with a voiceless stop) may indicate an early type of compound with *dHeh1- 'put down, place'. An original compound like *CeR-dHeh1-/*CeR-dHh1- might easily have been reanalysed as *CeRdH-.

The -dh- extension is commoner, but -d- is found elsewhere.   as / azd and
aw / awed for a start.
