Notes IE *uelk-u- (?); cogn. with 'hair' in /cognate/1202/ (but Walde has the roots separated!) and 'vomit' in /cognate/537/ (Kloekhorst 2008: 997); Celtic forms cognate with /cognate/2411/ and ultimately /cognate/174/ according to Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru.
Citation: Irslinger, Britta (University of Freiburg/Max Planck Institute for the Science ... Pages: View If Hittite *welk-u- contains -k- in the root, it cannot be cognate with the Celtic words.
Citation: Matasović, Ranko (2009) Etymological Dictionary of Proto-Celtic. Leiden: Brill. Pages: 135 View The Celtic words are from Proto-Celtic *gʷeltā ‘grass’. PIE root problematic, as *gʷʰel- 'to graze' does not seem to exist.
