Abstract:

The article discusses a reconstructed Proto-Indo-European *kod-tυ - < *h3ed-tυ - ‘enmity, strife’ as proposed by F.O. Lindeman in its relation to the phenomenon of a ‘movable’ word-initial k of certain IE cognate series. We draw attention to a hypothesis per which the cognate series serving as basis for Lindeman’s reconstruction would also include the Tracian theonym Koτus and its variant Koττῶ, of which the latter exhibits a geminated tt that could be seen as corroborating the proposed reconstruction.
