To account for the forms I wrote at the bottom in my
message. Most cases of *a come from a vowel by H2;
some need other explanations; I think this does not.
Reduplicated verbs exist with both e- and 0-grade so
*H2i-H2(à)g^- would become yaj- and i:j-.
I gave these examples:
yàg^- to Skt. yaj- and Greek hágios "holy"
ì:g^- to Skt. i:jitum

I don't dispute *H2i-H2ag^- < **H2i-H2eg^-. I didn't
see any need to mention e>a after H2 in an earlier
time. It works whether e>a or a remains here but not
elsewhere, or any other common theory.
