> Actually, I may have overlooked another derivative of PIE k^wo:n!  Thai su22nak55 is spelt <sunakh>, but Sanskrit <s> and <s'> are, so I am told, often confused in Thai spelling.  (Is this a Pali feature?)  Is there a Sanskrit or Pali word such as s'unakh- or s'unakha?
Skt. s'unaka- 'dog (esp. a small one, doggie)', Pali sunakHa (the normal word for 'dog' in Pali). The merger of the sibilants is indeed a typical Middle Indo-Aryan feature.
