Subject: [tied] Reconstruction of yaj-, hag-

Though I believe that PIE gained *a in various ways
besides e/o by H2 the root *yag^- "worship" has a
different interpretation.

I reconstruct H2i-H2àg^- with 0-grade H2ì-H2g^- to
account for:

H2i-H2àg^-     H2ì-H2g^-
H2iH2àg^-      H2ìH2g^-
H2iH2àg^-      H2ì:g^-
iàg^-          ì:g^-
yàg^-          ì:g^-

With yàg^- to Skt. yaj- "worship, sacrifrice" and
Greek hágios "holy"
ì:g^- to Skt. i:jitum "to worship, sacrifrice", the
irregular infinitive of yaj- (also regularized as

"Where have all the accents gone, gone to suffix every one . . "
