Notes
Citation: Irslinger, Britta (University of Freiburg/Max Planck Institute for the Science ... Pages: View Based on Proto-Celtic *lew-tu- or *low-tu- 'ash' (PIE *lewh₃- 'to wash' LIV 375), but different stems or reshapings in Goidelic and Brittonic. Matasović (2009, 246) postulates MIr. lúaith < *low-tw-i-, MW lludw < *low-tw-o-. Alternatively an underlying *le/ow-tw-ah₂ is possible, see the discussion in Irslinger (2002, 115). Brittonic could continue this stem directly, while the Middle Irish word has become an i-stem. OIr. lúaithred and Scottish Gaelic luaithre (and Manx?) contain the collective suffixe -red (Thurneysen 1946, 169).
