|Title: ||What is the Greek counterpart of Sanskrit th? (Unpublished handout)|

|Abstract: ||1. For the discrepancies between Greek and Sanskrit we suggest that the following reasons can be adduced :
a) laryngeal aspiration in Sanskrit (*h2 and maybe also *h1). The presence of a laryngeal is often assumed on the
Indic evidence alone, and this can be a circular argument.
b) internal evolutions within Indic, be it phonetic (influence of a preceding s), morphological (aspiration in
words of similar categories) or semantic (aspiration in words of similar meanings).
2. For the agreements we argue that if Greek and Proto-Indo-Iranian or Sanskrit have th, Proto-Indo-European
(or at least East-Indo-European) had a *th as well.|
