How about Ngnigenh1-e:s, -os-?


   Would *ngnye/os be the genitive of *ngnis?  If so, would it be better for the first half?  As for the second, *genH1- means (according to the EIEC) "beget a child, be born."  How do we get from that to "born?"  Have you added an adjectival or noun ending?  What are the rules for such things?
   Thanks for your help.
