Notes
Citation: Scarborough, Matthew (University of Cambridge/Max Planck Institute for the Science ... Pages: View All etymological authorities (Frisk, Chantraine, Beekes) agree that πόα (Att.), ποίη (Epic, Ion.) reflects a Proto-Greek Form *poi̯-u̯ā which is cognate with Lithuanian píeva 'meadow'. Beekes (2010) assumes PIE *poiH-ueh₂- or *poHi-ueh₂- with an indeterminate medial laryngeal, presumably to account for the Balto-Slavic acute accent?
