Hamp (Eric P.): Does morphological reconstruction really exist?
In Celtica 25 (2007), pp. 65–87.
Exposes the set of rules that govern Proto-Indo-European derivational patterns involving the prefix *h1su and the adjectival *-i, which is illustrated especially by examples of the several compounding types occurring with OIr. so-. In addition argues that the Old Irish negative prefix neb-/neph- derives from the petrified result of the prefix concatenation *ne-su- before a vowel.
