Interestingly, both Illic^-Svityc^ and Derksen (in "An introduction to
the history of Lithuanian accentuation") write *kaHwlós (with a non-
syllabic *w, like in *tenHwós, rather than syllabic *u) so that *aH is
tautosyllabic in their interpretation. That's how I.-S. seems to
interprete "long diphthongs". Does that, in your opinion, violate any
phonotactic constraints and/or syllabification rules?
