- v. Simple past tense and past participle of uvularize.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The vowel *ə in that example, not being a low vowel, didn't uvularize the preceding word-initial velar stop to *q-, although the following laryngeal was uvularized by the second vowel.
I think what happened next was that once uvular consonants became phonemicized in Late IE, *h2 was uvularized and became aligned with the new sound *q traditional plain *k.
