Which reminds me:
OI lo:g "wage, price", Lat lucrum "gain, advantage".
These are related classically in PIE, if we posit the existence
of 'extensions' *-b and *-k, of no particular meaning. If I declare
instead this a case of allofamy, both *leu-b- and *leu-k- would be
derived from some foreign *lau(G)- with *-b and *-k being PIE
renditions of the final of the loanword.
So, maybe I should ask again: should 'allofamy' be considered a
permissible concept in PIE?
