Formatted abstract
Statements on neutralization of the opposition in PIE between palatovelars and labiovelars abstracted by Frederik Kortlandt from a work by Lars Steensland are tested against the evidence they were allegedly originally based on, plus other evidence, and are found wanting in some respects. This may account for the mixed scholarly reception of Kortlandt’s statements. Among the findings presented here, which support Kortlandt’s contention that PIE contained no plain velar series, are (1) there is nothing un-Indo-European about the root onset *skw- and (2) there is no basis for believing that PIE *sKi- > Slavic /i-.
