To return now to Moneta , some modern scholars, such as Vanicˇek, have suggested that this might be a formation like rubeta . 31 But while it is undeniable that such a deverbative from a causative cannot have been inherited, it is nevertheless true that the statives and causatives in Latin have influenced each other analogically in many ways. We have already seen how participles like tacitus were modeled on those of the causative/iteratives. The analogy can also work in the opposite direction. For example, verbs of the type commonefacio and condocefacio are made from the causatives moneo and doceo on the model of another formation proper to the statives, cf.

But it is impossible to determine whether or not Latin short vowel, nu and nu inherited both the long and short forms because the only possible traces of the short form are ambiguous. Nunc ‘now’ would scan as long, even if the inherited quantity of the *-u- were short. ).

The stem *ku't-urcould account for the syllabic -u- 14 and so it is tempting to think that the -tt- is the actual outcome of the -tu' - of *ku't-u' r -. If it does not somehow continue -tu' - , the ˚ -tt- of quattuor is extremely difficult to explain. Therefore, it is almost impossible to accept that -tu' - could have given -tuu' - by any regular phonological process.
