On pg. 310–1 I endorse the claim of Jasanoff that animate n-stems retained their n in the nominative singular after ē in hysterokinetics but lost their final -n after ō, chiefly in amphikinetics. However, the Hittite evidence does not support this view. If Hittite MUNUS-anza 'woman' is to be read /kwanza/ reflecting a root noun *gwōns, that would suggest survival of n and recharacterization with s. On the other hand if Hitt. aliyaš 'deer' reflects an n-stem nominative *h1olē+s. Of course, these facts do not settle the question of the true distribution of n-ful and n-less nominatives.
