*dj, in this case (*pHla-d-jo:). This -z- extension (historically, a generalisation from present stems in *-d-j- and *g-j-) became extremely productive in Greek; <papHlazo:> 'splutter, boil, stammer' is thought to be the reduplicated form of *pHlazo: 'be bursting with a noise' (aor. <epHladon>), apparently from <pHlao:> 'crush'.
