Entries in the table below show Proto-Indo-European (PIE) roots, rendered as etyma where a reconstructed laryngeal phoneme */H/ appears in initial or final position with a contiguous vowel (before > after "coloring"). Each root is linked to a page showing the PIE etymon (spelled, per Pokorny, without laryngeals using the vowels E A O) and Indo-European reflexes thereof.
Note: etyma as spelled on this page have been rendered in ISO-8859-1, but PIE links lead to pages rendered in Unicode 3 -- with other renderings available via links there. [Unicode pages generally render Pokorny's etyma and non-English text more faithfully than is possible in ISO-8859-1, so they are much preferred.]
