[b-greek] Re: Locative -DE in NT Greek

Dear B-Greekers,

Julius Pokorny lists the locative-DE as a separate root in his Indogermanische Etymologische Worterbuch (the standard
vocabulary reference for Indo-European). The latest books on the subject suggest the Indo-Europeans lived in the area
of present-day Armenia until they broke up some time after 3000 BC.

So, the Greek locative-DE could have the same origin as the Hebrew HE, either from cross-cultural influence or from an
even earlier ancestral language.
