Archaic features in the sound system of present-day Lithuanian

Lituanus. 2015, vol. 61, no. 4, p. 59-67, 95
Summary / Abstract:

ENThe paper investigates various interesting features in the historical grammar of Lithuanian and concentrates on the absence of consonant germination that was inherited from the Indo-European mother tongue. The absence of consonant germination is likely to provide the underlying reason why in the verbal form "vedi" 'you lead' the consonant -s- of the person marker *-si was lost. [From the publication]
