Formatted abstract
A long discarded etymology connecting the Greek word with Balto-Slavic and
Germanic cognates is rehabilitated on the basis or one fresh semantic consideration together with the common lack or demonstrable e-grade rorms. which is here
explained by reconstructing h3) in the root onset. The resonant-like inhibiting effect
of the laryngeal on assibilation of the assumed root-initial prevalar (~ palatovelar)
in 0- and zero- grade rorms enables a widcr range or Balto-Slavic cognates to be
considered, thus providing a motivated answer to the ongoing question of whether
the groups usually assigned to, e.g., OE geap 'wide, spacious' and OE geap 'bent'
belong together, aS well as drawing other suggested etymologies of kouphos (or
their analogues) inlo the mix. A possible etymology for the previously essentially
isolated group or Lith. ziaubti ziaubiu 'eat with mouth full/open' also emerges.
