Any particular reason for this correction? I actually prefer your
first syllabification, since the inherent sonority a liquid is greater
than that of an obstruent (even one that can be vocalised), and *sh2-
is a possible PIE onset. The nil grade, attested in Germanic
(*sult-jo:), is consistent with the reconstruction *sh2l.d-(jah2).
