The full-grade suggests to me 'as usual' => that in a full-grade
the accent is on the root

BUT the Skt. form shows us a zero-grade
*h2nh2-t'i > a:t'i
What a zero-grade suggests to you?

Piotr the thematic -o- wasn't inherently accented.
Do you want to make for you a resume of the PIE accentuation
patterns to see this ?


P.S.: And I will not open here the theory regarding the 'origin of i-
/u-' as 'unstressed thematic o' (when I can show you that i and u
existed as full-vowels in PIE times)
=> because Once Again this is another theory that belongs to
Rasmussen's family and propagated by you
Do you have some other theories with no link to Jens?
