Abstract

Building on an earlier proposal that the Proto-Indo-European mediae go back to earlier pre-glottalized nasals (Kroonen 2018), several Indo-Uralic cognates are presented here in which the Proto-Indo-European mediae seem to regularly correspond to Uralic nasals, supporting their pre-glottalized nasal origin. Moreover, it is argued that the postulation of pre-glottalized nasals for pre-Proto-Indo-European can explain the shape of the numeral ‘20’ as attested in several Indo-European languages.
